The most recent scare with the Equifax Breach has left many credit users wondering what they need to do to protect themselves from this invasion of privacy and what they can do to prevent the next one. In this class, learn what identity theft is (it’s not just about your credit), how to minimize your risk of being a victim, and what to do if you suspect or are already a victim. The class is free; the information is invaluable.
