Article of the Month "Don't be maxed out by Identify Theft"  

Identity Theft

Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America, affecting an estimated 8.9 million Americans in 2010. In our featured "Cyber-Article of the Month", we raise awareness on this important subject and provide important tips on what steps to take in order to prevent, detect and respond to identity theft and fraud, and to help protect yourself against this unfortunate growing trend. Read more. Additionally, the Commonwealth of PA has created a website focusing fully on the subject, IdentityTheftActionPlan.com, that includes helpful information on how identity theft occurs, prevention tips, what to do if you're a victim, statistics about the crime, and information for law enforcement agencies that investigate these crimes.
