When it comes to concerns over identity fraud, we’re all at risk. Just look at the latest news headlines and you’ll find another company’s database was compromised – exposing thousands, even millions, of records containing their customers’ personal information. And criminals are right there; ready to commit fraudulent acts using your good name and good credit. In fact, 15.4 million Americans were victims of fraud in 2016.
