2) Note down all your credit cards, bank account numbers and related phone numbers in your small personal notebook, so that you can inform immediately in case of your credit card loss or theft.

3) Try using one credit card, if necessary then you can use one for your business purpose and one for personal use, also keep checking your both accounts weekly.

4) Write the "Check ID" instead of signing on your credit cards.
