I have been doing some research on identity theft lately and it is scary. I read that approximately 22,000 people become victims of identity theft each day. I was a victim myself several years ago when I was working in an office. I was the office manager for a graphics company and my desk was in the front office. We were doing some renovations to enlarge the office, so we had workers in and out all day. I kept my purse in a drawer in my file cabinet but I never locked it. While I was in one of the designer’s office, someone stole my purse. I did not know it was missing until I was leaving for lunch and went for my purse which was not there. I immediately called my credit card companies and my bank within minutes of my discovery. The problem was that we did not know when the purse was taken and therefore, how long the robber had access to my financial information. Within a matter of hours, 15 of my checks were used and my credit cards were maxed out and we later found several credit cards were opened in my name. It took me almost 2 years before I got everything off my credit report. It was a nightmare. Now, I am very careful about my purse as well as my important papers that I keep in the house. That is where NeatReceipts from the Neat Company helps me protect my identity and important papers.

Protect Your Identity And Important Papers

I read that many identity thieves will go through your trash to get your financial information. You are not supposed to carry your social security cards or checks with you. Thieves can more easily cash a check than they can figure out the code for your ATM card. One of the strong recommendations to protect your identity and important papers by scanning them. With the NeatRecipts system, you can scan your important and confidential papers. This way you can take the hard copies of your documents and store them in a safety deposit box or other place for safe keeping.

This handy little machine is great for so many uses in your home or office. It is very easy to set up and you can use it for your PC or your Mac. You can use it to scan documents like bank statements, deeds or certificates of sale, like a car title. Once you have scanned everything, you can store the information on your desktop, a flash drive, in the cloud or on your mobile device. The NeatReceipts scanner can also be used for lots of personal documents and papers. This is great for scanning recipe cards, programs or certificates from the kids school functions and just about anything else you can think of. Once you have stored your information, it is right at your fingertips when you need it. This is a great product for keeping your documents safe as well as for keeping your clutter down. You can buy the NeatReceipts scanner from their website ($179.95)
