IDENTITY THEFT PREVENTION
IDENTITY THEFT! WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF IT HAPPENS TO YOU?
My husband has been a career Naval Aviator for 23 years. His father was a veteran for over 28 years. You probably have relatives and friends who are in the service and/or who used to be in the service.
According to authorities, the laptop containing the VA data has been recovered. However, it is still unclear what has been done to this laptop, where it's been, who had it after it was stolen!
For information on the real threat of Identity Theft and what you can do to minimize your risk, please visit the Federal Trade Commission's website and other links:
As an affordable alternative to the 46 page FTC's Fighting Back Against ID Theft booklet, there is an existing low-cost identity theft monitoring and restoration service that can help you with potential legal and identity theft problems. We have been members of this service since June 2005 and were very relieved to have had the service when we received the news about the loss of the VA data. We highly recommend it to anyone and everyone!
If this can happen to our veterans and active duty military, it can also happen to you!
To your family's safety,
