Think YouÂre Not at Risk? DonÂt Leave Your Name and Credit Rating to Chance.
We live in an information-oriented society. Technology allows us to do business and make transactions literally in a matter of seconds. This abundance of information has given rise to a new crime - identity theft. In fact, according to a 2003 release from the Federal Trade Commission, almost 10 million people in the United States may be victimized by identity bandits each year. The Florida Department of Financial Services tells us that Florida is #2 in the Nation for victims of identity theft.
So what does that mean? Someone has stolen your credit card Â your credit card company can help you with that, right? Well, according to the FTC, almost 60% of identity theft issues donÂt pertain to your existing credit card accounts. Identity Theft is often committed by identity-theft rings, well organized and equipped to attack unsuspecting victims. Because we are susceptible through so many avenues in our daily life, we are all at risk. Businesses are also victims through these schemes, incurring losses of their own.
What can you do? Where would you turn if you found yourself in this situation? Would you know where to start to clear your name? Well, now you donÂt have to worry about what to do as we have the answer.
