Posted on 11/30/21 by The AARP Bulletin

From draining a victim’s bank account to opening new lines of credit, swindlers have several methods of using your personal information to steal from you.

The sessions will be held Thursday, Jan. 13, and Wednesday, March 16, at 1 p.m., and include an overview of identity theft, how and why it occurs and how to prevent this crime. The presentations will also cover what to do if you’ve been a victim.
