This Week is Identity Theft Awareness Week

The FTC and its partners will co-host a series of free events related to identity theft. A webinar with the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) will focus on ID theft during the pandemic. COVID-19 has brought with it a spike in identity theft as more things transfer online. The FTC reported double the cases in 2020 compared to 2019.
