Privacy protection


Hi there!  It’s Donna and thank you for allowing me to come into your inbox.

Today, I’d like to introduce you to my tip on privacy protection.


Privacy protection

We are constantly striving to protect ourselves from scams and scammers, but most of all we need to ensure that our privacy, confidentiality, and independence are kept safe from prying eyes and those who thrive on destroying our right to these precious commodities.


Applying for a credit card

once you have made up your mind which credit card you would like to apply for; next you need to find which bank issues said card.  Then you should go to said bank and ask for assistance to complete the application form.  It is always best for you to do it this way so that you do not need to depend on someone else to assist you with the hard copy form.


If you choose to do it the online way, then chances are that you would run into challenges with websites that are not very user friendly.


You could also apply for your card using the phone banking way.  However, you need to take the necessary precautions to ensure your privacy when your credit card confirmation letter arrives in the mail.


This letter will contain your credit card number and your 3 digit security code along with your expiry date.  Take this letter to your closest bank and ask staff to read this to you and copy it down in a format that you can read.  Keep this letter safe and do not forget to sign your credit card.  Sign it in front of a bank staff member to be safe.


That’s it from me for this week!
