Consumer Federation of America Shares
Tips on how you can Protect
Yourself from Identity Theft and Fraud

with Mark Wayne!
An estimated 13.1 million Americans were victims of ID theft-related fraud last year. That’s up more than 500,000 people from 2012. With the amount of personal information that we have on our computers, laptops, notebooks and smartphones, these devices are tempting targets for ID thieves.
Identity theft can cause serious harm. ID thieves could wipe out your bank account, open credit accounts in your name or take over existing accounts and wreck your credit record, or alter your health records by posing as you to get medical services. When you file your tax return, you could find that someone else already has, and got a tax refund. Even worse, if they get into trouble with the law they could give your ID as theirs. And your reputation could be damaged if someone gets into your social network account and posts embarrassing photos or malicious comments, making it look like you did it. ID thieves can also target your friends and relatives, pretending to be you and asking to be sent money to help with an emergency or getting you to click on something that will plant software on your device to steal your personal information.
To help consumers get smart and stay safe, CFA’s Director of Consumer Protection, Susan Grant, can go over what consumers can do to protect themselves and the people they care about from ID theft and fraud.
