Never Carry More Than Two Credit Cards in Your Wallet

: one individual credit card and one service credit card. Abagnale doesn’t bring a debit card, considering that they do not come with the exact same consumer defenses as credit cards– and he recommends all of us to leave our debit cards at house.

Every time you use a debit card, you put your money and your bank account at danger. That said, debit cards offer some of the most convenient ways to gain access to money, whether you’re going to the ATM or asking and making a purchase for cash back at the register. You can leave your checkbook at home(if you understand you’re going to be writing a check that day, Abagnale suggests putting a single check in your wallet in advance)as well as other rarely used files like Social Security cards.
