ID Theft Protection
1. What is identity theft? Identity Theft occurs when someone uses your personally identifying information without your permission to commit fraud or other crimes.
2. What is personally identifying information? This would be your name, social security number, or credit card number
3. What can you do to help fight identity theft? Awareness is an effective weapon against many forms of identity theft. Be aware of how information is stolen and what you can do to protect yours. Plus monitor your credit report at least annually to uncover and hopefully resolve any problems quickly
