Investing an hour of your time could protect you from our nation's fastest growing crime

REGISTER for a free online webinar designed to minimize your risk of identity theft

The Indiana Attorney General's Office, in conjunction with the Indiana Bankers Association, is offering FREE webinar training sessions to help educate Hoosiers about identity theft in efforts of reducing the spread of this crime in our state. Participants of this free online training course will gain:

  • An understanding of how the crime occurs to help thwart threats
  • Insight on ways ID thieves use the evolving technological landscape and other methods to perpetrate the crime
  • Techniques for spotting red flags and practical tips to avoid falling prey to them
  • The tools and knowledge to educate others about identity theft prevention

Identity theft takes on many forms, affecting victims with more than just financial loss.  In some cases, victims have lost out on job opportunities or the approval of loans for cars, education or housing.  In rare cases, they have even been arrested for crimes they did not commit.  Victims of medical identity theft may have erroneous patient data – that of the identity thief – in their medical records. The crime is widespread because the thieves are becoming savvier with the ways they collect and use personal information to commit crimes in victim's names. That is why it is critical to stay educated on this topic.
