Staying Safe and Knowing Your Rights to Prevent Identity Theft

Naples Campus

From understanding how consumer reporting agencies work to knowing your rights when faced with financial liability as a result of identity theft, Hodges University’s Identity Fraud Institute will host two workshops in August that Southwest Florida residents are encouraged to attend.

Hosted by Carrie Kerskie, director of the Identity Fraud Institute, both workshops will be held on Hodges’ Naples campus, which is located at 2647 Professional Way, Naples, FL 34119.

The “Getting to Know You” workshop will be from 10:00-11:00 a.m. on August 8, 2017. During the workshop, participants will learn about consumer reporting agencies and how consumers, by law, are permitted to know what information is listed on personal consumer reports. In addition, Kerskie will explain how to request a copy of a consumer report.

The “Knowing Your Rights” workshop will be from 10:00-11:00 a.m. on August 22, 2017. Oftentimes, victims of identity theft are faced with numerous pages of legal documentation when trying to determine their rights. To be protected, the fraud must be reported within the required amount of time; otherwise, the liability becomes that of the victim. In this workshop, Kerskie will explain victims’ rights, so there is a better chance of minimizing or eliminating financial liability from identity theft or fraud.

The cost to attend each workshop is $25 per person. Advanced registration is required. To register, visit
