Northwest Iowa — In this first month of the year, you may need to be more vigilant to keep from getting ripped off by scam phone callers, or identity thieves.

Dan Hendrickson, a spokesman for the Better Business Bureau, says it’s not too late to make a resolution to ensure your credit is safe.

By checking your credit report, Iowans can spot signs of identity theft early. It may also be helpful to register your phone on the “Do Not Call” registry to avoid a host of questionable sales pitches and pleas for charitable donations, but it isn’t a perfect system.

To get your phone on the “Do Not Call” registry, visit donotcall.gov.
