#22 Get Some Social Security
Let's just say the list in your wallet currently looks like this:
Change it to this:
Dog Sitter (123)456-7890
Midtown Train (123)456-7890
Kitchen Store (123)456-7890
Choose random locations or people with the same first letter as the person whose SS# you need to remember. Like the first example the 'D' is for Dad's SS# and Dog Sitter. Place the first three digits of the SS# in parentheses like a phone number and add a zero or another randomly assigned number to the end of the SS# and the list looks like a bunch of phone numbers. If someone steals your wallet they won't realize what a precious list of identity killing numbers they have their hands on and will probably toss them aside in favor of other items.
My point. I hope your wallet never gets stolen, but if it does, don't deliver your identity to the criminals on a silver platter.
