How to (not) protect your credit

So I am again a victim of identity theft. I don't know how it's happened this time, particularly since I can't recall having actually used this new card. However, I'm pretty sure I used it somewhere at least once. That's probably where I was exposed. I'll see if I can find out.

In the meantime, how do you protect yourself from this? If you get a credit application, tear it up, right?

Nope.

He tore up his application. He taped it back together. He listed a cell phone number on the application. He used a different address. Chase Mastercard sent a new credit card to the address anyway.
