Shoeboxed Infographic Highlights Eight Surprisingly Dangerous Items You Keep in Your Wallet

  (January 14, 2013)

Durham, NC (PRWEB) January 14, 2013

Shoeboxed, the industry leader in cloud-based receipt scanning, has released a new infographic listing the eight most surprisingly dangerous items you keep in your wallet.

The infographic, which ranks the eight items from low risk to high risk, draws attention to the fact that an astounding one in ten Americans has their identity stolen every year. This sizable figure is equivalent to the entire population of the state of North Carolina and cost victims a startling $37 billion in annual losses.

Shoeboxeds infographic arrives on the heels of a small survey conducted by the Durham-N.C. based company which found that a shocking 10% of its users carry a Social Security Card in their wallet. Because an individuals nine-digit Social Security Number is all an ID thief needs to open fraudulent accounts, Social Security Cards topped Shoeboxeds list and were crowned as the most dangerous item to be carried in a wallet.


Robert Siciliano, renowned author, personal security and identity theft expert, weighed in on Shoeboxeds infographic, noting: while criminal hackers have received all the attention regarding identity theft, it is still the paper records in our lives that cause the most significant identity theft issues. Eliminating the paper and digitizing along with using antivirus, antispyware and a firewall is the most secure position.

In addition to ranking the eight most surprisingly dangerous items you keep in your wallet, Shoeboxeds infographic also offers simple, practical solutions to prevent identity theft from occurring. Some of these suggestions include: using a free mobile app to encrypt and store your passwords, keeping only one credit card in your wallet at a time, and storing and shredding receipts on a regular basis.
