Keep personal details safe
CLARENCE Valley residents are being encouraged to be vigilant with personal details during National Identity fraud awareness week.
Page MP Janelle Saffin said a survey was available on the Australian Federal Police website that educated the general public on importance of being aware of identity crime.
The survey covers safety tips such as checking ATMs for any signs of tampering before using, shredding bank statements and other documents instead of putting them in the recycling bin, and deleting spam emails from the deleted email folder.
