• Have your checks mailed to your bank, and pick them up there.
• Don't mail checks from your home. Mail them from the post office.
• Find out if your debit card has fraud protection similar to credit cards. Many don't.
• Read your bank statements closely for anything that you don't recognize, and look into it immediately. Don't forget ATM withdrawls and miscellaneous memos.
• Use secure ATM locations. Watch for people lurking nearby or extraneous electronics attached to the ATM interface. If the machine takes your card (as opposed to just letting you swipe it) make sure you have it when you walk away.
• Avoid letting businesses debit your bank account instead of a credit or debit card. If something goes wrong, a credit or debit card is so much easier to change than your bank account number.
