Is it safe to recycle unshredded paper credit card receipts? Can identity theft be helped by data disclosed on most vendor's receipts?
Most credit card receipts will contain your name and the last 4 digits of your card number.
I can think of several companies that either currently verify by last 4 digits or have in the past verified by last 4 digits. These are companies such as Apple, Godaddy, Paypal, etc...
So while the chances are low, it's still possible that someone could perform some degree of identity theft with this information.
