ID Safety / Identity Theft Prevention
IDSafety.org is a resource designed for consumers and law enforcement to combat identity theft. Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in the United States and people aged 18-29 make up the group most commonly victimized by it.
Identity theft occurs when someone steals personal identifying information and uses that information for personal gain. College students can be prime candidates for identify theft due to a lack of preventive measures taken. To learn more about identity theft and how to protect yourself review the Identity Theft Prevention Toolkit (PDF) and Identity Theft Resource Guide (PDF).
