I found a great article  today that I just had to share with everyone.

Nobody likes to be taken – especially when it comes to money.

Hi, my name is Monika and I was a victim of fraud! Last year someone attempted to steal over $800 from my bank account. Prior to that, someone had charged $64 on some auction site on line.

I immediately contacted my bank, the social security office and I entered an ID Theft Protection Program.

I had to close all my accounts and restart new ones…it was an extensive and exhausting process and I felt so violated! There was no bodily harm done but just the sheer idea that someone had access to all of my information made me so angry!

I must say – Thank God for my awesome bank…Wells Fargo and my wonderful banker Rachel Galindo! She helped me get thru it all!

So, the lesson here is that we must take preventive measures that will avoid this from happening to you.

Speak with your bank and ask questions and check out the article Here to find out what the 4 riskiest places to use your debit card are.

Trust me “Knowing Is Half The Battle” my friend!
