​Holiday Fraud Watch: ​Protecting Your Identity ​

We hear about it every day - another person has had their identity stolen. But identity theft isn't just about stealing money or making fraudulent purchases. Thieves can use your personally identifiable information to apply for jobs, file taxes, and obtain benefits or medical services. Older adults and people with disabilities are especially vulnerable to identity theft. Join Crystal Terhune to learn how to prevent and protect yourself from fraud, how to discover if something isn't right, and what to do if you discover a problem. ​Register here: http://bit.ly/UMETelCon​​
