If upon hearing the phrase “identity theft,” your first thought is, “Oh, crap!” You are not alone. While the topic of identity theft can evoke feelings of overwhelming dread, there are accessible resources out there if you find yourself a victim of identity theft as well as steps that can be taken to minimize the risk of having your identity stolen. We invited Eva Velasquez, President and CEO of the Identity Theft Resource Center, ITRC for short, on to talk to us about identity theft, and explain how the ITRC, through a host of accessible resources, can help us be proactive and responsible about ensuring that our identity is ours and ours alone.
