Crimes of identity theft and fraud have increased. As technology expands to complicate the crimes even more, the need for well-trained and knowledgeable professionals has increased as well.
Each victim’s individual case will demand different needs and each victim’s situation will present new challenges. If the professionals who come in contact with identity theft victims understand the crime and resources available to combat identity theft, the crime’s impact to victims and the time spent on recovery can greatly be improved.
