Home Living : June 2nd 2009
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, June 2, 2009 7 Put life through shredder HOMELIVING Identity fraud has become the fastest- growing crime in Australia, with half a million victims in the past 12 months and costing the economy $1 billion. Putting bills, personal information, credit cards and old licences through a shredder will protect your privacy. Despite the risk of having credit card details stolen, a Newspoll survey showed almost 70 per cent of people threw away bank and credit card statements, social security and tax file details, utility bills and other personal information, putting them at risk of falling victim to identity fraud. Those most at risk are professional women in their 20s and 30s. Crime Stoppers urges people to shred all statements and personal information before placing this sensitive material in a recycling bin. This is the only safe way to ensure personal information is secure from dumpster divers. It is also recommended to shred CDs containing personal records and old credit cards and driver's licences. An Australian Bureau of Statistics study into identity fraud found that, in the past year, 383,300 people experienced at least one unauthorised, fraudulent transaction on their credit cards or with their account details. Identity theft accounted for another 124,000 victims of identity fraud. These victims included those who experienced unauthorised use of their personal details, such as a driver's licence, tax file number or passport, to conduct business, open accounts or take out loans illegally in their name. Many of us don't think twice about posting personal information such as birthdays on the internet or tossing paid bills into the recycle bin. These two simple pieces of information can be the start of someone stealing your identity that can lose you money and take years to recover your credit rating.
