Identity Theft Protection

Identity theft is a growing problem in Illinois and nationwide. Often, victims don't realize their personal information has been stolen until they apply for a job or a loan.

Even more chilling - postal inspectors say once you're a victim of identity theft, there's the potential you'll be a victim multiple times. Your information is out there, and it will get passed around.

If you think you're a victim, you can call the Illinois Identity Theft Hotline at (866) 999-5630. There is also more useful information here: /
