Identity theft and credit card fraud are not the same crime, though the two are often lumped together as one. Identity theft is much more far-reaching than credit card fraud. When a criminal steals you identity, they may have financial motivation, but you'll suffer more than fraudulent charges on your credit cards.

Identity thieves may change account information, create new accounts, use your identity to commit crimes, and even use your identity to establish a new life. Credit card fraud, on the other hand, is limited to charges on stolen credit card numbers. A criminal gains access to your account number and then uses it to purchase products online or in person and then resells those goods to get the cash.

So, if credit card fraud is not identity theft, why address it? The simple answer is because credit card fraud can be an element of identity theft. It can also lead to identity theft.

Preventing Credit Card Fraud

Preventing Credit Card Fraud

Credit card fraud is a crime that can often be prevented. For example, something as simple as a signature on the back of your card could prevent the card from being used if it’s been stolen. Even better, put the letters CID (which stands for See ID) on the back of the card. Then when a merchant attempts to verify the signature on the receipt with the card, they’ll request to see your identification.

Everyone is familiar with the basics of protecting your credit card. Don’t loan it out. Don’t leave it laying. And don’t give the number to someone you don’t know without first verifying they are legitimate.

But there are lesser known strategies for protecting your credit cards and card numbers, too. And these are the strategies that you should know well and use constantly.

  • Keep your card in sight. Whenever possible, keep your credit card where you can see it. Some places, like restaurants, take your card away and then bring it back after they’ve secured authorization for a transaction. It’s when the card is out of your sight that it’s often swiped through a card reader that stores the information from the magnetic strip for criminals to use to create a duplicate card later.
  • Ask about multiple swipes. It’s not uncommon when you hand a merchant your card for them to swipe it more than once. Usually, this happens because the card reader doesn’t read the magnetic stripe on the back of the card, but savvy criminals will also use a second swipe as a method to copy the information from the magnetic stripe to a storage device to later be transferred to a duplicate card. If your card is swiped more than one time, always ask why.
  • Never use your credit card on an unsecured Web site. A secured Web site will have a small lock in the lower right corner of the page, or the status bar for the page. If the lock doesn’t appear there, then the site is not secure. Don’t use your card on an unsecure site, because anyone with a little skill can capture the number and use it for their own purposes.
  • Never carry multiple cards. If you lose your wallet or purse, you lose everything that’s in it. Another danger here is that someone will go through your wallet or purse when it’s left unattended and steal just one card. Leave any card you won’t be using at home, and try to stick to putting all of your purchases on just one card.
  • Never give out your credit card number while you’re on your cell phone. Cell phones have become such a large part of our society that we often forget everyone around us can hear our conversations. If you need to provide your credit card number for a purchase while on the cell phone either request to call the company back from your own home, or find a place that’s private (like inside your car, alone) to provide the number.
  •  
  • Consider purchasing pre-paid credit cards for online shopping. Pre-paid credit cards are one of the best ways to protect yourself. You load the card with a set amount and then use it just as you would a regular credit card. The good news is, if the number is stolen or the card is lost, your liability and the amount of damage that’s done is limited by the money that’s available on the card. As an added bonus, there’s no interest on a pre-paid card since technically you’re spending your own money, anyway.

Credit card fraud may not be actual identity theft, but it’s often a step along the way. And even if the criminal that fraudulently charges your card isn’t interested in your identity, the expense and frustration of dealing with credit card fraud is reason enough to protect yourself.

Be smart. Use caution. And always be aware of how your credit card is being handled by someone else.

Identity theft and credit card fraud are not the same crime, though the two are often lumped together as one. Identity theft is much more far-reaching than credit card fraud. When a criminal steals you identity, they may have financial motivation, but you'll suffer more than fraudulent charges on your credit cards.

Identity thieves may change account information, create new accounts, use your identity to commit crimes, and even use your identity to establish a new life. Credit card fraud, on the other hand, is limited to charges on stolen credit card numbers. A criminal gains access to your account number and then uses it to purchase products online or in person and then resells those goods to get the cash.

So, if credit card fraud is not identity theft, why address it? The simple answer is because credit card fraud can be an element of identity theft. It can also lead to identity theft.

 History of Credit Cards

Credit cards work to make tremendous revenues to credit card companies, banks & retail sales. They do not however work the way they used to work for the customers that temporarily possess them. Lots of years ago when credit cards were invented & I was a young boy they were a way to finance household items thought about necessary. These were things like washing machines & clothes dryers. Credit cards today have such a high interest that they are no longer attractive to buy such items. Credit cards are primarily now appear to be used to hide & avoid indebtedness.
 History of Credit Cards

There is nothing nice about debt. Americans have been satisfied by retail salesmen & the banks that to have nice credit must have a solid credit history through credit cards or credit accounts. A solid history means over the fact that you have consistently made payments on time without failure. The credit card companies & the banks assess your spending tends, the debt load over time, your savings history, checking deposit history & actual check spending history. This personal information is felt by these institutions to be proprietary, belonging to the institution because of their matchless methods of collection, than belonging to the individual who creates this activity.
 History of Credit Cards


A credit card, if it is the only credit card you possess, could start improving a portion of bad debt only in the event you liquidate your current debt in a steady, reliable manner. This will only show a history of reliable payment. As I have already said banks & credit card companies are not interested only in your reliability, they require the "juice" off of the advanced credit you have obtained. This means they only require you in the event that they can get their interest in a regular & steady manner. This is not the same as pay your debt regularly until it vanishes. They require you to stay indebted permanently but repaying them in a timely manner.

In the event you are debt free you may not be judged to be a nice credit risk. This is the state that underage children & young adults find themselves whenever they try to secure a credit card. Basically said, nice credit doesn't mean what it did fourteen years ago. The protections afforded the consumer since the Depression of 1929 no longer exist. The Financial Laws passed through Congress in 1992 allowed banks, insurance firms,especially medical insurance firms investment firms to handle banking, insurance & investment operations. Laws passed after 1929 had prevented banks from insurance & direct stock exchange trading, likewise insurance firms could not pursue banking operations or stock exchange nor could stock exchange companies pursue insurance or banking operations. This freedom was granted without the later protections of the consumer included in these new laws. There currently exists no single body of consumer law. The private citizen must fight the triumvirate of bank,insurance & stock exchange through the court method.
