When you get a new credit card, what do you do with it?

Do you cut it up? Shred it? Or throw it away?

I caught someone I care about today throwing away their old credit card in a public garbage when they got a new one. Um, no. Just no.

The number is NOT different. The name is not different. The flipping CRV number is the same! The only thing that is changed is the expiration date- usually by three years. So if someone picks up that discarded card, they have everything they need to know except your billing address- which is easily findable on google.

Please please people, be safe. Cut the card up or shred it and dispose of it in at least two unrelated waste baskets.
