Great new podcast between Identity Theft 911 and Don, a victim of identity theft in Ohio.
The victim, who works as a homebuilder, turned to Identity Theft 911 for help after a fraud ring attempted to steal more than $40,000 from his business accounts.
As Don says in this podcast, “I have never done a wire transfer so I thought it unusual that I had that. The bank said, ‘Don’t worry about it, it’s a holiday weekend.’ But I was concerned so I checked the online account again and saw the transfer was not pending anymore and was completed.”
“Fortunately, I had purchased a month prior to all this happening, a rider for identity theft. So when all this was happening I called my insurance agency who put me in touch with Identity Theft 911.”
The victim says Identity Theft 911 also alerted him that the thieves were trying to change his address on three different occasions, all in an attempt to keep him in the dark about financial statements and other personal matters.
