Edu­cat­ing con­sumers about pre­vent­ing iden­ti­ty theft and iden­ti­fy­ing poten­tial pre­text calls may help reduce their vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty to these fraud­u­lent prac­tices.  The Coun­ty will have brochures avail­able to con­sumers and an iden­ti­ty theft pre­ven­tion sec­tion on the County’s web­site that describes pre­ven­ta­tive mea­sures con­sumers can take to avoid becom­ing vic­tims of these types of fraud.
