·         Have regular checks like social security deposited directly into your account.

·         When in your car keep doors locked. Be extra cautious in parking lots and garages.

Home Safety

·         Install quality locks on doors and windows and keep them locked.

·         Before letting in any delivery or service person ask for proper identification.

·         Always make sure that your address number is clear and visible so emergency personnel can find your home quickly.

Don’t Fall for a Con

·         Do not fall for any plan that is too good to be true—it usually is!

·         Never give out any personal information over the phone.

·         Never let anyone push you into signing an insurance policy, or sales contract of any kind.
