Identity Theft in Nebraska

Nebraska MapIn Nebraska, 52.2 people out of every 100,000 inhabitants will become the victims of identity theft in an average year. This crime can have deep, long-lasting impact on individuals' lives, as criminals damage victims' ability to get a mortgage or rent an apartment, to open up a new credit card, to get a job, or to set up utilities at a new place of residence. Identity thieves can use stolen names and social security numbers, among other pieces of information, to get expensive medical care, buy new cars, or even open up payday loans in multiple states - all before their victims are even aware. At best, it can take significant amounts of time and money to rectify the damage done; at worst, some people have been falsely imprisoned for crimes committed using their identities.

Fortunately, several Identity Theft Protection services are available to Nebraskans in order to avoid becoming one of the nearly 1,000 state residents who are likely to report identity theft this year. These services protect customers by monitoring their identifying information (e.g. social security numbers, bank and credit account numbers, birth dates) around the clock, detecting when any suspicious activity occurs and moving immediately to prevent any further attempts. Such companies also help customers to navigate the process of restoring their good name in the event of any identity theft that may occur, saving them a great deal of worry and time.

However, it is also important for Nebraska residents to take some common-sense steps to protect themselves from identity theft. Many people are familiar with "phishing" emails, which are set up to appear to originate from a trusted business or financial service provider and ask recipients to log in with their account numbers and passwords. In general, it is often unwise to click on such links in emails; customers should go directly to the business' website or call the customer service number on the back of the credit/debit card or on a monthly statement if they have any concerns.
