Dale Penn and his wife were identity theft victims. It was all new to them and they had no idea what to do. This led Dale on a journey and now he’s written a book about it, Identity Theft Secrets, which shows you how not to be a victim. There are things that you can do right now to prevent thieves from getting ahold of your idenity. First, lock down all of your computers. Encrypt your hard drives and protect your mobile devices. Next, make sure any important documents are shredded before they hit the garbage can and finally monitor your credit report. Even if you take all these steps, you still may be victimized, but you’ll be prepared and will act quickly to minimize the damage.
