In  honor of National Identity Theft Month, the library has put together some resources to help you learn about identity theft and where to go if your identity is stolen.

Educate Yourself:

  • Check out the Consumer Rights and Identity Theft page on the Financial Literacy Libguide for articles that explain identity theft and tips for keeping your information safe
  • The Federal Trade Commission has scam alerts to help you recognize scams that you may encounter.

If You're A Victim:

This guide from the FTC can help you figure out to do based on the situation. You can also visit to fill out a report and get help creating a plan that will get you back on track.

The Massachusetts Attorney General's Office has also provided resources on their page, Protecting Yourself If Your Identity Is Stolen.
