Have You Been a Victim of Identity Theft?
Identity theft is the crime of the digital age, and seemingly every day we hear about a massive data breach that results in real harm to consumers.
A few years ago, I worked with the Florida Legislature to add additional credit protections for minors whose identities were being stolen at an alarming rate.
Today, I was proud to stand alongside Jimmy Patronis, Florida's Chief Financial Officer, as well as legislative leaders, to help announce a new bill that would remove all fees associated with putting a freeze on your credit.
Protecting consumers from fraud continues to be a top priority of mine, and we should do all we can to make protecting consumers' financial information as easy as possible.
