According to the Federal Trade Commission, Florida ranks fourth in the nation for number of identity thefts reported (180 per 100,000 people).
In an increasingly digital world, criminals are adapting more quickly with attacks that can put your hard-earned money at risk. The Federal Trade Commission reports that younger adults fall victim to fraud more often, but the median amount lost is much higher for senior citizens.
To help our community stay informed about how to identify potential threats and prevent attacks, we are hosting guest speakers from the Identity Fraud Awareness Community Taskforce.
