Treasury releases DVD on identity theft

The Treasury Department today released a DVD that informs consumers about identity theft, how to protect themselves against it and what to do if they fall victim.

Viewers see how a typical identity theft victim resolves the situation by working with law enforcement officials, credit reporting agencies and financial institutions.

The DVD, entitled “Identity Theft: Outsmarting the Crooks,” features a resource library of downloadable materials, including sample forms and letters that victims can use in reporting the crime and collecting evidence.

The Treasury Department worked with several federal departments and agencies, including the U.S. Secret Service, and other trade associations to make the DVD.

Consumers can get the DVD from the Federal Citizen Information Center in Pueblo, Colo. for a handling charge of $2. Visit www.pueblo.gsa.gov for more information.
