www.ftc.gov/semanarobodeidentidadHoy damos inicio a la Semana de Concientización sobre el Robo de Identidad de 2022. Durante la pandemia, los ladrones de identidad han estado más ocupados que nunca. Los estafadores y ladrones de identidad han estado a la búsqueda de la información de la gente para solicitar crédito, beneficios de desempleo, comprar cosas u obtener servicios médicos. Pero hay algunas cosas que tú puedes hacer para protegerte, y las aprenderás a lo largo de esta semana.

Durante esta semana, todos los días cubriremos distintos temas, entre otros, los pasos que puedes seguir para proteger tu información personal, y lo que hay que saber sobre los congelamientos de crédito y las alertas de fraude. Sigue estas alertas que te ayudarán a mantener tu dinero y tu información personal a salvo de los estafadores.

Pero espera, ¡todavía hay más! Esta semana, participa en seminarios web, podcasts y otros eventos gratuitos para escuchar los debates de los expertos acerca de cómo detectar, protegerte y recuperarte del robo de identidad. Hay de todo y para todos, incluidos algunos eventos que destacan los recursos disponibles para el personal militar en servicio activo, los veteranos y los adultos mayores.

Comienza sumándote a un debate en Facebook Live hoy a las 3 p. m. hora del este: Estafas de impostores y el robo de identidad. Podrás escuchar a expertos de la FTC y de la red Fraud Watch Network de AARP que hablarán sobre los impostores que se hacen pasar por representantes del gobierno o de negocios reconocidos, cómo tratan de robarte la información y cómo detectarlos y frenarlos.

Para consultar los detalles sobre los seminarios web, podcasts y programas en Facebook Live de la semana, y cómo participar, visita Semana de Concientización sobre el Robo de Identidad 2022. Luego, únete a nosotros el viernes, cuando cerremos la semana con un chat en Twitter para hablar sobre las tendencias del robo de identidad, recomendaciones para detectar y evitar el robo de identidad y cómo recuperarse.

Thank you for this! Scams seem to be getting more sophisticated and difficult to detect from txt, to email, to phone calls. I appreciate all the knowledge I can get to stay safe.

This sounds very helpful but apparently you are under the delusion that everyone uses Facebook and Twitter and other forms of social media. My computer is as old as I am (in computer years, that is), and my "smart phone" is not that far behind and definitely in the advanced stages of Alzheimer's. I hope you will share the same info with the rest of us, here, in a written format.

Thanks for pointing out that not everyone uses social media. I myself have NEVER used Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media, as far as I know, precisely to AVOID more exposure to identity theft. (Also, huge time wasters.) How ironic to be told to go to them for identity theft information!

I agree with Mama Jo. This needs to be in writing and updates given weekly.

It sounds like my computer may be a bit newer than yours, but I'm not putting myself or it in the grasp of Facebook. So I'm with you on this one.

We, pretty much know, what to do to protect our own identity. The question is what are you doing to protect us from the bad guys?

While I recognize the FTC strong advocacy towards Fraud Prevention, I certainly would like to made aware of some CONVICTIONS.

FTC should more rigorously regulate sites like MyLife.com which publicizes individual "profiles" that contain a LARGE collection sensitive information that any identity thief can use with a casual google search. Why is this allowed?

This December 2021 FTC press release explains that MyLife.com, Inc. and its CEO, Jeffrey Tinsley, have been banned from engaging in deceptive negative option marketing and will pay $21 million following allegations that they tricked consumers with “teaser background reports” and trapped them in difficult-to-cancel subscription programs.

Thanks for the info. It will be an interesting week. I left Facebook and Twitter years back so do you have any plans to share the info with people like me? Perhaps a transcript? I'll settle for a good summary of important facts. Thanks!

Neither my wife or I have a FB account. Nor do we want one. In fact it took us weeks to delete our old FB accounts. We deleted the accounts because of the miss information and risk of being dragged into a scam. Please offer this valuable information to folks not using social media.

I agree with Mama Jo. There's a reason why seniors are targeted. And we are not all on twitter or Facebook. That would be two more accounts to have hacked. Please share this important information in written format with the rest of us. Thanks!

I would love to watch/attend these sessions. Unfortunately every single one of them is during the work day. I couldn't see any information about there being a recording available later, so none of this will be helpful to me.

A person can Google themself and see LOTS of personal information. All this info is there for the public to see/use. What can we do to remove this information and keep it from happening again?
