March 17, 2021 – Identity Theft
Identity theft can happen to anyone even you.
Identity theft happens when someone steals your personal information to commit fraud. The identity thief may use your information to fraudulently apply for credit, file taxes, or get medical services. These acts can damage your credit status, and cost you time and money to restore your good name.
Federal Trade Commission (FTC), tracks consumer fraud and identity theft complaints that have been filed with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies and private organizations. Of the 3 million identity theft and fraud reports received in 2018, 1.4 million were fraud-related, and 25 percent of those cases reported money was lost. In 2018, consumers reported losing about $1.48 billion related to fraud complaints, an increase of $406 million from 2017.
Joseph Risher, Allegheny County Police, Crime Prevention/Community Relations Officer and Terri Rae Anthony, East Central Safety Department, AAA, will discuss warning signs of identity theft and ways to prevent it from happening to you.
