If you have a credit card, use mobile banking or ever bought something online, you are at risk for identity theft. In fact, even those who don’t have credit cards are at risk, and it’s vital you learn how to protect yourself. Criminals are always on the hunt for ways to steal enough personal information to take out loans and credit cards under someone else’s identity, and you don’t want to be the next target.
Financial expert Ted Bauman recommends keeping part of your wealth in secure safe deposit boxes at banks and foreign vaults to protect your money from disaster scenarios. Bauman has spent his entire career helping people to protect their resources, so his recommendations influence many investors. He attended the University of Cape Town in South Africa where he earned postgraduate degrees in economics and history. An economist by trade, Bauman worked for many years in South Africa in executive roles for low-cost housing projects, hedge funds, nonprofit companies and even urban planning. He returned to Atlanta, Georgia, in 2008 and later joined Banyan Hill Publishing where he edits “Alpha Stock Alert,” “Plan B Club” and “The Bauman Letter,” which has more subscribers than any other newsletter published by Banyan.
