26 Oct Better Business Bureau and Identity Theft Prevention–Not Just An Agency To Call To Complain
In recent weeks, the Better Business Bureau has been in the news stressing ways that consumers can protect themselves against identity theft. (see Denver Post blog citing a press release from a Susan Johnson of the BBB)*. Now, the BBB joined forces with the National Foundation of Credit Counseling (NFCC) last week and launched the 2nd annual National Protect Your Identity Week (PYIW) October 17 – 24, 2009. The BBB also held a Secure Your ID day on October 17, 2009. The Better Business Bureau also set up a website for the public at http://www.protectyouridnow.org/ where consumers can take a quiz to see how secure their identities are and has gathered together a set of statistics on identity theft to educate the public on the need for extra security.
A few of the statistics cited:
Please explore the website, take the test, read the statistics and start protecting yourself from the costs of identity theft.
