11:15 am - Identity Theft & Scam Prevention

Identity theft is a serious crime with serious costs for victims.  Victims of identity theft may lose significant money and time, and may find their reputation and credit rating has been damaged, affecting the ability to obtain loans for education or housing, approval for rental agreements, and approval for credit cards or large purchases requiring credit.

On Monday, March 15, representatives from the Attorney General’s Office held a public presentation on Identity Theft for Victims and Consumers. The presentation educates consumers about the steps to take when identity theft is discovered, and how to protect personal information to prevent identity theft.
