What College Students Do to be Safer:

Be vigilant for fraud!

Password protect phones and computers

Use the locks on your dorm room door

Protect your Social Security number, tax return and FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)

Always safeguard your purse or wallet

Don’t overshare personal information online

Learn that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is

And sadly, don’t be so trusting, especially to anyone you don’t really know
