 Identity Theft: Theives don't care if you are a CFE 

You might think of all people, who would steal the identity of a CFE? Cyberthieves may use an ATM or gasoline pump device (sniffer) to read RFID cards. Amazon sells such devices for as little at $9.00 to nearly $2,000. I’ve had two instances of fraudulent ATM transactions (7 under $500 each) from my checking account over a two-month period. Then I figured out how it happened. I reported it to law enforcement. Recently, my identity was stolen to file for fraudulent unemployment insurance benefits. Yet, no one told me I was laid-off or terminated. I was still working and getting a paycheck. When I was notified by my two employers that someone was fraudulently applying for unemployment benefits—although I was still employed, I first thought it was a scam or a cyberthief phishing for information. I sent in the email at work to our IT cybersecurity group to confirm whether the message was legitimate. To my surprise, it was authentic. Then I sprang into action. In each case, I spent 2 to 3 hours filing police reports, contacting my bank, FTC, and state unemployment office, and the major credit bureaus. To think identity theft may not happen to you—think again! In my presentation I will save you time in responding to a case of identity theft and what steps to take.
