Below are some helpful links for more information on security and protecting your privacy:
A good site from the federal government with info on all sorts of topics such as Identity Theft, Spam Scams, Phishing, Online Shopping Tips, VOIP etc. It also contains videos and tutorials. You can also order free publications and file complaints with the Federal Trade Commission.
This FTC website is a national resource to learn about the crime of identity theft. It provides detailed information to help you protect yourself from identity theft, and the steps to take if it occurs. It also has links to other topics and warnings such as Scam Alerts.
The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act requires each of the nationwide consumer reporting companies – Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion – to provide you with a free copy of your credit report, at your request, once every 12 months. But there’s only one online source authorized to do so. Beware of other sites that may look and sound similar, but charge you for the service.
