Don't Mess with Texans' Identities


As part of an ongoing effort to prevent identity theft in the state, the Texas Attorney General has launched a Web site to help citizens avoid becoming victims of what has become the fastest growing white-collar crime in the nation. Texas ranks second in the nation for the number of ID theft complaints.

The site includes tips for prevention as well as an Identity Theft Victim's Kit that victims can use to minimize damage, and a video that features testimonials of actual identity theft victims. www.texasfightsidtheft.gov
