National Identity Fraud Awareness Week

This week is National Identity Fraud Awareness Week. Last year I wrote a detailed article on how to protect yourself from identity theft. The article also shares the story of how my sister was defrauded of $2,000.

This year the Australian Federal Police have published an excellent survey to test how well you protect yourself against identity crime. The survey is a quick 15 questions and quite insightful. I recommend you take the survey now to test how protected you are.

Identity theft can cost you a fortune in lost money and time. This week take a few moments to assess how risky your behaviour is and read my article on how to prevent ID theft. Then of course take action!
