Safeguarding Your Identity
June 19 @ 13:00 - 15:00Free
Presented by: Michael Le Compte; (Ret.) Police Officer, Crime Prev. Coordinator, Ocean City PD
Identity Theft is the fastest growing crime in the world. It now accounts to losses of several millions dollars to the citizens of the United States, annually. Identity Theft is when someone “pretends to be someone else” by assuming the person’s identity, typically in order to access resources or obtain credit and other benefits in that person’s name and typically occurs when someone uses another’s personally identifying information, like their name, social security number, or credit card number, without their permission, to commit fraud or other related crimes. . This class will discuss what it is, how it can happen to each of us, new prevention techniques, and actions to take after your identity has been stolen from you! The class will address both personal and commercial loss.
