Identity Theft in Tennessee

Tennessee MapIf you live in Tennessee, you might not know that 4,370 people in your state reported being victims of identity theft in a recent 12-month time frame, representing a rate of 69.4 cases for every 100,000 people in the population. You may also be unaware of the disruptive, invasive nature of this type of crime as criminals steal personal information and use it to make expensive purchases, get jobs, rent apartments or get mortgages, or obtain costly medical treatments like hip replacements and cosmetic dental work.

Repairing this invasion of your privacy and security can take considerable amounts of time and money as you work to reestablish your credit rating and your good name.

How can you and other residents of Tennessee protect yourself from ever becoming victims of identity theft? One of the most thorough means of protection is the use of Identity Theft Protection services. These companies keep a close watch over customers' personal information - names, addresses, birth dates, social security numbers, and other financial accounts - and have the ability to flag any potential unauthorized activity almost instantaneously. This makes it less likely that an identity thief can use your information for days, weeks, or months at a time, leaving you with an expensive mess to sort out.

Naturally, you also have to be smart and protect your information. If you are asked to provide private details over the phone or by email, make sure that it is through a contact you have initiated yourself - and be aware that most companies do not ask you to download files online or to disclose social security numbers or passwords over the phone to "fix a problem". When in doubt, you can always contact those companies directly using trusted contact information (e.g. a customer service number on the back of your credit card, or a URL given on a monthly account statement) to see if there really was an issue.

If you live in Tennessee, you can prevent identity theft and avoid this attack on your reputation and your credit score.
