Enter Addresses Manually
Identity thieves work hard to gain access to your accounts and your money. One easy way to thwart a number of possible schemes is to always manually type in the web address of your bank or financial institution. Never go to a website by clicking a link in an email or on another web-based form. The link you click may take you to a website designed to look like the one you wanted to visit and if you enter personal information, the identity thieves can use that information to access your real accounts.
It may seem like a hassle, but always manually type in sensitive Web addresses. The few extra seconds you spend typing can help you avoid the time and cost of identity theft.
