Secure Your Identity Month

This year, Secure Your Identity Month will be held October 5th – 28th. It was founded to bring attention to the growing ID theft crisis, and help consumers protect their own identities.

Clearpoint Credit Counseling Solutions invites consumers and small business owners to Secure Your Identity Month events being held at select locations across the country.

Free services at most of the events include:

  • On-the-spot document shredding (up to 3 boxes)
  • Computer, electronics and cell-phone recycling (select locations)
  • Drawing for one free year of AllClear ID PRO
  • Take home prevention tips and resources

Clearpoint credit counselors see an increasing number of clients who experience credit difficulties as a result of ID theft.  For the 13th year in a row, ID theft was also the subject most frequently complained about by consumers to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

Visit the Federal Trade Commission’s Identity Theft site where you can learn how to tell if your identity has been compromised, file an ID theft complaint, learn more about ID theft and download several free ebooks, including Take Charge: Fighting Back Against Identity Theft.

Clearpoint Credit Counseling Solutions greatly appreciates the generous support of our community partners who’ve joined us in supporting these events.
