A great way of preventing identity theft is to invest in a shredder. Then stack your junk mail close by. Every time you shred a confidential document, sandwich it between a couple of items of junk mail. If you line your shredder hopper with a plastic shopping bag, every time you empty the hopper add some household waste - such as used tea bags etc., to the top of the bag. No one will find anything that they can use in your dustbin. If you donít have a shredder for your bank statements etc., soak them in water overnight. Squeeze them out, and the printing will be completely illegible!
