The Indiana Attorney General's Office, in conjunction with the Indiana Bankers Association, is offering FREE webinar training sessions to help educate Hoosiers about identity theft in efforts of reducing the spread of this crime in our state. Participants of this free online training course will gain:
Identity theft takes on many forms, affecting victims with more than just financial loss. In some cases, victims have lost out on job opportunities or the approval of loans for cars, education or housing. In rare cases, they have even been arrested for crimes they did not commit. Victims of medical identity theft may have erroneous patient data – that of the identity thief – in their medical records. The crime is widespread because the thieves are becoming savvier with the ways they collect and use personal information to commit crimes in victim's names. That is why it is critical to stay educated on this topic.
Spread the word, not the crime
Participants of the identity theft training course will gain the knowledge and tools to help educate others about the prevention of this crime. You are encouraged to share the information you learn in this training program with friends, family or other members of your community. This can be accomplished with educational workshops, publishing information in newsletters or other mailings within your organization/affiliations, or by sharing helpful prevention tips or links to this web page via email or social networking sites.
