With all the daily transactions you do with other people, you are actually giving away bits and pieces of your personal information. There is nothing wrong with this, except there are those who might take advantage of the information they have, to commit certain crimes like fraud and theft. The worst part is, you may be blamed for these problems. There are DIY (do it yourself) ways on how to protect yourself from identity theft. You can change your pin or passwords regularly (that includes ATM and even computer or internet log-in data). You can read your credit card statements habitually. You can always look around before you access the ATM for cash. But, if you are a very busy person, that is quite time consuming isn’t it?
