  1. List your name in the phone book with initials and last name only or consider not listing at all
  2. If you live alone, do not give your name on the out-going voicemail message. Give your phone number only or two names, such as yours and your pet’s.
  3. Don’t leave personal details or holiday absences on any voicemail message.
  4. Be wary of telephone surveys. Don’t participate in surveys that ask anything personal.
  5. Do not answer your personal phone with your name, never let a stranger on the phone know when you will or will not be at home, or that you are home alone.
  6. If you receive a call that seems to be a wrong number, do not volunteer your phone number. If the caller requests it, ask what number they were trying to reach. Then verify the wrong number without giving out your own number. Remember, it could be a burglar/home invader checking you out.
  7. Keep emergency phone numbers handy.
  8. Never let a stranger make a call – offer to make the call for them if you feel safe enough.
