Everyone thinks “it won’t happen to me,” but anyone, anywhere could become a victim of identity theft. Earlier this summer more than 40 million credit card holders’ identities where “stolen.” In any given year, more than 700,000 Americans will have their identities stolen.
There are ways to put the edge on your side. The Wisconsin Federation of Cooperatives and Minnesota Federation of Cooperatives offer a quiz on their Web sites to help you identify your risk of identity theft and how to protect yourself.
