What should I do when I get a credit card in the mail?

Sign Your Cards Immediately

When you get credit cards in the mail, sign them immediately so that no one can forge your signature. Some people will write in the signature line "See ID" so that the clerk needs to check their driver's license. They do it as a safeguard so that if their credit card gets lost or stolen, it will be harder for it to get mis-used.
