When talking on your phone, be aware of your surroundings and who is coming and going. Concentrating more on your phone conversation than what is going on around you makes you more likely to become a victim of a crime. Don’t give out personal information (bank information, social security number, home address, driver's license number, etc.) over the phone; you don’t know who is listening to your conversation and they can use your personal information to steal your identity.
