How to Avoid Identity Theft


Identity theft crimes are on the rise across the nation. Your personal identifying information can be accessed

deposits on cars and housing, obtain employment opportunities, create insurance benefits, and rob retirement
earnings. This form of financial sabotage can devastate your credit, and require endless hours of telephone and
written communication to resolve. In the meantime, you may experience difficulty writing checks, renting apartments,
and securing employment. While following these precautionary steps is not a guarantee of protection, it
will greatly reduce your chances of becoming the next identitiy theft victim.
