"A few simple precautions can increase your security while you shop, such as cleaning out your wallet at home and taking only the credit cards, checks or cash that you need for the day. It's also a great idea to hold on to your receipts, and use them to compare to the charges on your credit card statement. Be certain the charges are valid before you shred your receipts."
