Identity Theft Protection Program

IPTV, AARP Fraud Watch Network and AARP Iowa are teaming up to bring you a special event that will help you identify and avoid scams and frauds. Join us at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 3, for a taping of Stealing Your Life: The Ultimate Identity Theft Protection Plan with Frank W. Abagnale.

Abagnale, whose years as a confidence man before his 19th birthday were depicted in the 2002 film Catch Me If You Can, has been a consultant to the FBI for over four decades. During this hour-long program, Abagnale will tell his incredible life story as only he can, and then he’ll share his insight and expertise as a world-renowned expert on the subject of identity theft and cybercrimes. You’ll see how one’s identity can be readily stolen and the consequences of the many breaches we read about every day. Most importantly, Abagnale will share very simple yet effective tips on how to safely use social media and how to help protect you and your family from being victims of identity theft.

According to the Federal Trade Commission, identity theft is the number one crime committed against American consumers; over 15 million victims annually or one victim every two seconds in the United States. No one is immune to identity theft. If the criminal can become you, what he can do as you is only limited to his imagination – obtain a mortgage in your name, buy a car in your name, get a credit card in your name, get a job in your name or even commit a crime in your name.
