Years ago we were told to lock our cars and houses at night or when we left so burglars wouldn’t get in.
Obviously locking doors didn’t always help as they would simply break windows etc.
The times have changed. No longer are the majority of burglars looking for jewelry and TV’s. Their after your credit cards, bank accounts, your identity and digital life.
Equifax recently experienced a data breach that affected 143 million people, the majority of which is adults, however people much younger are experiencing this and never find out until their 18 years old. Your date of birth, social security number, driver’s license number, and more have been exposed and will CONTINUE to be.
It is estimated that one out of every two people will have their identity compromised in some way, shape or form in the next year. That means if you have anyone else in your household…. you guessed it…
What does this mean for you? Right now, you need to be monitoring for all types of ID theft including tax fraud, medical fraud, bank account fraud, credit fraud, and driver’s license fraud. Carefully watch your bank and credit card statements for unfamiliar transactions.
