Rob Cockerham at Cockeyed.com tells us how we should all get paper shredders.
“I wasn’t sure if just tearing a credit card application into tiny bits was good enough to prevent dumpster-diving theft, so I did a test.
I tore one up, then taped it back together again, filled it out with a DIFFERENT address and CELL number.
Sure enough, in four weeks I was rewarded with a shiny new card with a $5,000 limit.
Another reason to get yourself off the pre-approved credit card list.
