Summary

The sooner you learn how to avoid identity theft, the better. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) says that as many as one in every eight adults and one in every four households has been victimized by identity thieves in the past five years. To make matters even worse, if you end up a victim of identity theft, it can take years to clean up the mess.
 
Being young is about starting a life and having opportunities, not dealing with scammers and identity theft. In the age of the Internet, fraud is a serious risk that we all face. This book provides the young adult audience with all of the information they need to stop these serious problems in a conversational, and sometimes humorous, tone.  
 
From teaching teens what identity fraud is to identifying the warning signs, this book has you covered. The young adult audience will learn what to look for when they’re buying that new record or contour kit online, such as websites that should not be trusted.
 
You will also find a step-by-step guide to recovering your identity in case it has actually been stolen.
 
To avoid being a victim of identity theft, the first step you need to take is to arm yourself with the knowledge contained in this book to protect yourself before it ever happens.
