Retirees Encouraged to Take Steps to Reduce Identity Theft
Retirees in Southwest
Florida will now have the opportunity to learn about reducing their chances of
identity theft thanks to Hodges University’s Identity Fraud Institute.
Carrie Kerskie, director
of the Identity Fraud Institute at Hodges, will host “Steps to Reduce the Risk
of Identity Theft” from 3:00-4:00 p.m. on January 11 and January 18, 2017. The
one-hour session will discuss how to implement the various steps in order to
reduce the risk of identity theft. “These steps can help you reduce or prevent
your risk of new account fraud, government benefits identity theft and more,”
said Kerskie. For individuals who have been a victim of identity theft, Kerskie
assures this information will help to reduce the risk of recurrence.
“While identity theft
cannot be prevented, there are simple steps that one can take to greatly reduce
the risk of specific types of identity theft. Not all identity theft can be
detected by credit monitoring,” she said.
