Holiday Safety Tips

(For Shoppers)

If you carry a wallet, keep it in your coat breast pocket, or in your front pants pocket

Keep your purse close to your body- in front of you where you can see it - and cover the clasp or flap with your hand or forearm. Don't carry open- weave bags or purses without flaps or zippers- these are easy marks for pickpockets.

Walk confidently. Be Alert and notice who pass you and who is behind you. Be especially mindful of pickpockets on crowded buses and trains and among crowds of holiday shoppers.

Don't overburden yourself with packages that may make it difficult for you to keep track of your purse or wallet or to respond to a personal threat.

Teach your children to go to a cashier and say they are lost if they get separated from you in a store or shopping mall. Tell them NEVER to go to the parking lot to look for you at the car.

Don't leave packages or other valuables on the car seat where they can be seen. Lock them in the trunk.

When you use a credit card to make a purchase, keep your eye on it to make sure that it is used to print one slip only.

Always tear up the carbons after signing a credit card slip. A crook could take the carbon from the trash, copy the number, and use it online or to make telephone purchases.
