Identity Theft Prevention

Identity fraud is one of the fastest-growing crimes in the nation; one study claims there's a victim every 79 seconds. Experts say one out of eight Americans has been a victim in the past five years. Those stung by an identity thief usually get tangled up in trying to clear their name. Individual victims can spend up to 60 hours trying to undo the damage, according to Your Credit Card Companies, an ad hoc group of some of the largest credit card issuers.

Identity theft, (the fraudulent use of your name and identifying data by someone else to obtain credit, merchandise, or services) affected seven million victims in the U.S. last year, according to a recent survey by Privacy & American Business. Thatís 10 times as high as past estimates. Canada, Japan, and the United Kingdom are among those countries also reporting ID-theft epidemics.

We provide information and recommended steps to take to protect themselves from identity theft and what steps to take if they become victims of identity theft.
