Protect Your Identity

We want to assist you in knowing important information to protect your identity and secure you finances and information. Identity Theft occurs in our communities and world wide every day. Obtaining your personal and sensitive information can occur in many different ways, such as stealing actual personal items to deceiving peoples into sharing their information by use of phone scams, mail, or the Internet. Criminals can be very clever, so we want you to be prepared.

Identity theft can destroy a financial background that you have worked hard to create. It can take much time and money to restore a damaged credit history. There are many great resources to educate everyone on the real dangers and practical safe keeping tips to help eliminate the risk.
