Stay Safe – Avoiding Identity Theft and Financial Fraud

How common is identity theft? Even if you haven’t been victimized, when you hear news of another significant data breach or a friend tells you a story of an ID theft issue, you may wonder if you’re next - or if it’s something you need to worry about at all. An estimated 17 million Americans were victims of identity theft in 2019. This workshop will teach you the essential steps and actions you need to take to protect yourself, tools available to help consumers, and the do’s and don’ts related to your credit history.

Core topics: 
    
   • How ID theft happens 
   • Common financial scams 
   • Using Credit freezes 
   • Best practices when the phone rings 
   • Options when a data breach occurs 
    
Facilitated by: Mark Munzenberger, CCUFC, Financial Education Specialist at the University of Michigan Credit Union
