The Nuts and Bolts of Identity Theft
September 11th, 2014
IdentityForce, the Boston, MA-based provider of identity, privacy, and credit protection, announces “The Nuts and Bolts of Identity Theft,” a comprehensive infographic designed to make identity theft easy to understand. “The Nuts and Bolts of Identity Theft” describes the different types of identity theft, reviews the many ways it can occur, and offers ten simple strategies to keep sensitive information safe.
Recent statistics speak to just how widespread identity theft has become:
- In 2013, more than 13 million people fell victim to identity theft.
- Every two seconds, another American has his or her information stolen.
A consumer’s best defense against identity theft is a thorough understanding of it, which is why IdentityForce created the easy-to-understand “The Nuts and Bolts of Identity Theft” infographic, available for download from the IdentityForce.com Resource Center.
The infographic explains exactly how criminals are able to access billions of passwords, bank information, and other highly personal data. The damage they can do with that information is considerable, ranging from taking out loans and opening new credit cards to cleaning out personal bank accounts. Consumers are left with a shattered credit rating and a tangled legal mess. It can take years to recover from identity theft.
“The Nuts and Bolts of Identity Theft” will help consumers understand what to watch out for and what steps to take to reduce their risk. Even armed with this information, consumers may still want additional protection. With IdentityForce’s UltraSecure+Credit, personal information and credit is constantly monitored. If any suspicious activity occurs, consumers are promptly notified, enabling them to act fast, before any damage is done. And if something does go awry, IdentityForce steps in to ensure the victim’s good name remains intact.
