Michael Liotti And Paul Rivera On Identity Theft Prevention

Pinecrest Police Commander Michael Liotti (right) and Sr. Detective Paul Rivera join us for breakfast and talk to our club about identity theft trends on a local, state and national level. Due to current economic circumstances, such crime has increased and it is expected to continue until economic recovery begins.  Despite the latter, there are ways to protect oneself thru crime prevention resources offered by the private and government sectors.


Paul says..."Please pass to other members or concerned individuals as a Prevention Tool. This kit is designed to help through the process of resolving Id Theft. While there are many general identity theft resource guides available, this kit was specifically developed to provide assistance to Floridians who are identity theft victims, as well as individuals in other states who had their personal information fraudulently used in the state of Florida. Navigating through the system as an identity theft victim can be a lengthy and confusing process. As you contact law enforcement, creditors, and financial institutions, it is important that you keep track of the actions you take and retain a record of your progress. When your identity is stolen your personal identifiers can be misused in a variety of different ways. As soon as you become aware that your information has been misused, there are several basic steps you should take that apply to nearly all kinds of identity theft cases".

To receive this kit at no cost, please contact us.
