Protect your privacy

Most people donít spend much time thinking about identity theft until itís too late. And once youíre a victim, the results can be devastating. When thieves steal your identity, they take your personal information without your permission. They use a range of techniques, from stealing your mail to posing as a legitimate company in a phone call to hacking into business records.

When they get your data, credit cards and bank accounts can be opened up in your name and your information can be passed on to others.

As a result, you may spend years trying to reestablish a good credit rating or secure a car loan or mortgage. Protect your privacy - The Olympian - Olympia, Washington
