Help Your Students Avoid Identity Theft

August 10, 2017

Identity thieves are out there. It’s an unfortunate truth, and their victims suffer much more than someone who has $50 stolen from their car. Identity theft occurs when a person commits fraud by posing as someone else. And it can take anywhere from months to years to recover from it. The Nelnet Library offers a guide that explains the precautions to take to avoid identity theft.

Our guide offers a variety of tips designed to help student borrowers keep private information private. This printer-friendly PDF also offers details on checking annual credit reports to ensure that they are accurate. And for student borrowers who may already be victims, the guide offers steps to take to mitigate damage and resolve the situation.

Check out the Nelnet Library for this and other great financial literacy resources.
