Are you a social worker, attorney, or someone who likes helping others work to help resolve the issues identity theft causes?
If so, check out a new video from the Federal Trade Commission. The video is designed to help facilitators who assist consumers in repairing their identity. Entitled Helping Victims of Identity Theft, it’s the latest addition to the FTC’s library of resources that explain not only how to recognize identity theft, but also how to report it and repair the damage it can cause.
The FTC says it gets more complaints about identity theft each year than any other consumer issue, and estimates that nine million consumers become identity theft victims each year.
Other studies say that every three seconds, someone becomes a victim of identity theft. Check out this infographic made by insurance provider Protect Your Bubble.
