Don’t be a victim of identity theft-educate yourself!

October 19, 2009

It’s scary but true that last year alone, nearly 10 million Americans were victims of identity theft, making this the fastest growing crime in America! Everyday we may be putting ourselves and our families at risk by simply writing a check, using a credit card or even our ATM cards. The best protection against such identity theft is education.

I was recently made away of the website  I logged on and took their quiz to assess your risk of ID theft and learn helpful tips to keep you and your family safe.  Thankfully, I got a good score on my quiz but I did get two questions wrong, so there were some things I learned.

Since this crime is not going anywhere, it is time for us to fight back!  National Protect Your Identity Week, a program brought to you by NFCC and Council of Better Business Bureaus, is October 17-24. I invite you to visit visit where they can get involved in National Protect Your Identity Week events and learn important tips.

Take the quiz and let me know how you scored (can you beat mine;)?
