Do you
have patrons that need help with identity theft? A recent report from Equifax
stated that someone's identity is now stolen every 2 seconds!


In this
informative program learn more about 
IdentityTheft.gov, the federal government's free, one-stop resource to
help people fix problems caused by identity theft. 


It's now easier for
victims of identity theft to report it and recover from it. The site allows
patrons to get a personal recovery plan that walks them through each step;
update their personal plan and track their progress; and print pre-filled
letters & forms to send to credit bureaus, businesses, and debt collectors


Find
out what to steps your patrons can take if they suspect identity theft (whether
it's related to credit accounts, tax returns, minor children, or medical
records) and how to spot imposter scams, a prevalent and evolving fraud that
can lead to identity theft.
