We live in an era of rapid change and much has shifted in the higher education landscape. One of the changes is that the Identity Fraud Institute (IFI) will no longer be a stand-alone institute supported by Hodges University; however, the university remains devoted to the fight against identity theft. One way this will be accomplished is by offering consumer workshops, taught by Carrie Kerskie, through the university’s Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL). Information on these workshops will be announced in the coming months. Further, the university wishes to continue to support the efforts of the Collier Identity Theft Task Force. Carrie Kerskie, as a member of the task force, will work as the liaison between the university and the task force.
With your support, the IFI was able to accomplish much. When the Collier Identity Theft Task Force and the IFI began, Naples was third in the nation for identity theft complaints. The 2017 Sentinel Report revealed that Naples dropped to number nine nationwide for identity theft complaints. News such as this reinforces the need for continued vigilance and updated information about identity theft mechanisms and prevention.
Here are some accomplishments of the IFI:
Thank you for your support over the past three years!
