Technology has made connecting to information and to each other easier than ever. We can shop, bank and do our taxes online. Many of us use credit and debit cards more frequently than cash, and we readily post photos and personal information to social media websites. Unfortunately, this has given crooks more opportunities to access our personal and financial information. With conmen and identity thieves looking for new ways to take your money, it is critical to understand how to reduce the likelihood of identity theft, what to do if your information does get compromised, and how to spot a scam.
