Credit card fraud is more common than ever, and the holiday season is a particularly vulnerable time.
To reduce your chances of becoming a credit fraud victim, you should first choose your credit card company carefully. Look for zero liability protection and sign up for alerts.
One of the best ways to avoid fraud is with a strong password. Make sure it is long, with letters, numbers and symbols, and isn’t something obvious like your birthday or children’s names.
