It’s a Trap! 10 Tricks Targeting Your Identity and Information

Maryland’s Attorney General Brian Frosh will speak with MACo Conference attendees about how he is seeking to help victims of identity theft.

Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the country, affecting nearly ten million Americans a year — and Marylanders are not immune.

Identity thieves may target older adults whose social isolation, loneliness, and memory loss make them particularly vulnerable. Examples of identity theft include when a thief uses your personal identifying information to open credit accounts in your name or to evade criminal liability.

At this year’s MACo Summer Conference, hear ways that the State is seeking to help victims of identity theft address their problems, and to help all consumers protect themselves from identity thieves.

On Friday, August 19, 2016 from 1–2pm at the Roland Powell Convention Center, county officials will learn advice to share with their constituents about how to protect themselves from ID thieves using, or continuing to use, your personal information, and how to address some of the issues that identity theft causes, such as dealing with credit card companies or collection agencies.
