Identity theft is an all too real threat in the 21st century. Anyone of us can be a victim of it at any time.
Luckily, McGruff the Crime Dog and the National Crime Prevention Council have lots of suggestions as to what you can do to protect yourself from identify theft. Their free booklet Preventing Identity Theft: A Guide for Consumers is available for download here as a PDF document.
Preventing identity theft is your Warrendale Tip of the Week. My thanks, of course, to everyone at the National Crime Prevention Council for making these materials available.
