Identity theft information meeting is open to Taylor community

TAYLOR — An identity theft information meeting will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Dec, 2 in the City Council Chambers in City Hall, 23555 Goddard Road.

The free meeting is open to the community.

People who have been a victim of identity theft or are seeking information about it are encouraged to attend. Discussions will involve protection tips, child protection, current scams and statistics and how victims cope. The meeting also will include a question-and-answer session with identity theft experts.

“Unfortunately, crimes involving identity theft and fraud are continuing to grow,” said Taylor police Detective Lt. Mary Sclabassi. “The damage and frustration it causes victims can be far-reaching and take a very long time to resolve. We’re hoping that by providing the community with tips to combat ID theft through this seminar that we can help prevent some of it.”
