This person is now able to sell a victim’s information or keep it for their own personal income. Now that I have discussed what credit card fraud is and the different types of credit card fraud, I will share with you the precautions to take to avoid being a victim. When your new credit card is mailed to you, sign the back of the card when it arrives. By signing the card, you agree and authorize the terms by which are stated by the financial institution. Most places will also check your ID at the time of the transaction to prove that the signature matches the person’s identification. During a transaction, watch the clerk or cashier that is processing your payment and immediately store it back in a wallet or purse. Doing this will avoid violators from taking pictures of the credit card and committing fraud. Leaving the card out for unnecessary amounts of time is the perfect chance for them to do so. Shredding and disposing of receipts is another precaution to take to avoid this problem.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
