As the holiday season descends upon us in its bright and shiny glory, we must remember that the art of gift giving can and sometimes does come with a price. That price is identity theft and for many Americans, it’s a costly price to pay. According to Lifelock, a company that can help prevent identity theft, more than 15.4 million people were affected in 2016, up from 10.2 million in 2007 (Lifelock.com). The short article from NPR¬† highlights some of the basic ways you can help protect your identity and financial information this holiday season. We want to wish everyone a very safe and happy Thanksgiving and Christmas.
