* To fend off higher tech thieves, consider purchasing an RFID blocking wallet.
* Don't share personally identifying information in public places unnecessarily.
*: For instance, don't post your birthday and place of birth, your name and current address all in one place. (Many people do that without thinking much about it on places like Facebook.) Although much of this information is available from public places already, make the thief work harder, and he or she will probably use the ID of someone else who made it easy. ...
