Identity fraud happens to everyone. So what do you do when it’s your turn?

Increasingly, identity theft is a fact of life. We might once have hoped to protect ourselves from hackers with airtight passwords and aggressive spam filters, and those are good ideas as far as they go. But with the breaches of huge organizations like Target, AshleyMadison.com, JPMorgan Chase, Sony, Anthem, and even the US Office of Personnel Management, more than a billion personal records have already been stolen, and chances are good that you’re already in harm’s way.

This doesn’t mean there’s no hope. Your identity may get stolen, but it doesn’t have to be a life-changing event. Adam Levin, a longtime consumer advocate and identity fraud expert, provides a method to help you keep hackers, phishers, and spammers from becoming your problem.

Levin has seen every scam under the sun: fake companies selling “credit card insurance”; criminal, medical, and child identity theft; emails that promise untold riches for some personal information; catphishers, tax fraud, fake debt collectors who threaten you with legal action to confirm your account numbers; and much more. As Levin shows, these folks get a lot less scary if you see them coming.

With a clearheaded, practical approach, Swiped is your guide to surviving the identity theft epidemic. Even if you’ve already become a victim, this strategic book will help you protect yourself, your identity, and your sanity.
