  • Don’t carry unnecessary personal information in your wallet or purse.
  • Store personal and financial documentation safely. Always lock it away (e.g., passports)

  • Alert the SA Fraud Prevention Service immediately on 0860 101 248 or at safps.org.za if your ID documents are lost or stolen – register for credit and identity theft monitoring and obtain a case number from SAPS
