Making Identity Theft Resources Easily Available
Identity theft has continued to increase in frequency over the past decade in both California and the United States as a whole. As reported by MercuryNews.com, California Attorney General Kamala Harris stated that every year, more than 1 million Californians are victims of identity theft. She also emphasized that identity theft can result in heavy debt to credit bureaus, illegal use of Social Security benefits, draining of bank accounts, and many more abuses of a victim’s funds. With these points in mind, the resource center provides informative data to help identity theft victims understand the crimes that have been committed against them and how they can recover. By gaining knowledge from the resource center, identity theft victims can become more familiar with how to rebuild their lives and not suffer financial consequences caused not only by identity thieves, but also creditors seeking to collect debts unfairly or illegally.
