Top tips:

  • Keep your letterbox secure – have a lock
  • Keep your personal information in a safe place at home – a home safe isn't a bad idea
  • Only allow access to your online networking sites to people you know, and don't volunteer information that isn't necessary
  • Only give out personal details and information when it's absolutely necessary, and only give it to people you trust
  • Destroy your personal information, don't just throw it away – opportunistic criminals have no qualms about going through your rubbish.
