Common ways identity theft can happen:

"Old Fashioned" Stealing -Thieves typically steal wallets and purses. They also steal mail such as credit card and bank statements, pre-approved credit card offers, check orders and other financial mail.

Dumpster Diving - Thieves dig through trash looking for bills, financial or other personal information.

Change of Address -Thieves modify or redirect your billing statements to another address by completing a "change of address" form.

Phishing -Thieves may send unsolicited Emails, pretending to be a financial institution or a company, asking you to click a link to update or confirm your personal or login information. The link is directed to a "spoof" website designed to look like a legitimate site.

Skimming -Thieves may use a card reader device to copy the card's magnetic strip to duplicate without the card owner's knowledge.

Monitor your accounts -Keep track of transactions on your accounts by logging in to South Side Bank's Online Banking, where you can view your activity as it is posted.
