Taking a trip can be a ticket to identity theft. Think about it, your wallet is akin to a miniature directory of your identity - your driver´s license, credit cards, debit card, medical insurance card and other numbers all stored in one place. In the event of a lost or stolen wallet, having all of this information in one place greatly increases your risk of identity theft. Plus, mobile devices and public Wi-Fi at airports can open you up to fraud as well.
