Remember to protect your identity from digital theft
The Colorado Bureau of Investigation Identity Theft and Fraud Unit is encouraging Colorado residents to take steps to protect their identities in light of the latest news that hackers allegedly stole a record 1.2 billion user names and passwords from websites around the globe.
According to a CBI news release, the agency has not received any reports of Colorado residents impacted by this apparent digital data theft, but agents offer the following tips to help reduce the impact of identity theft.
Frequently change passwords on websites, especially those containing personal and financial information such as banks and online shopping sites.
Thoroughly review bank and credit card statements to ensure there are no unauthorized transactions.
Never offer your personal identifying or financial information to someone you don’t know.
Be wary of emails that encourage you to “click here;” instead visit the Web page directly. For example, do not click the link for a bank in the body of the email; rather, type the bank’s URL and then visit the site.
The CBI offers support and assistance to victims of identity theft and fraud through its ID Theft Hotline (1-855-443-9489-toll free), which is staffed 24 hours per day.
