Keep a close eye on your credit card charges!
What a scare I had yesterday! I got a message on my answering machine from my credit card holder's fraud department, couldn't follow up sufficiently through their phone robot, so I got online instead--and discovered several big charges on my credit card that I hadn't made! EEEK! Needless to say, I hopped on the phone to the credit card company immediately and got hold of a real person to tell my troubles to. It's OK now--she said I won't be liable for those charges and, of course, my card will be cancelled and replaced. I also signed up for identify theft watch--cheap insurance, in my rattled opinion. I'm sure I'll remain a little nervous about this until I get documented proof that, yes, my credit is OK and those fraudulent charges are gone.
