The Federal Trade Commission will kick off 2023’s Identity Theft Awareness Week Jan. 30-Feb. 3 with a series of free events focused on trending issues in identity theft, including how to reduce your risk of identity theft and recover if it occurs.

During the week, the FTC and its partners will host free webinars, podcasts and other events focused on trending issues in identity theft that are helpful for ACA International members as they work with consumers who may be subject to identity theft.

The FTC is hosting an early-bird webinar for Identity Theft Awareness Week on Jan. 25 featuring experts from the FTC and American Association of Retired Persons, who will discuss identity theft prevention and recovery for veterans, scams that target personal information, and best practices for keeping your information safe..

Identity Theft Awareness Week will formally begin on Jan. 30 with a discussion from the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) and the FTC on how identity theft can affect anyone, how to reduce your risk, and steps for responding when identity thieves strike. It will end Feb. 3 with a podcast featuring college students and speakers from the ITRC and FTC on how identity theft and scams affects students.

Know My Debt is a free and insightful resource for consumers seeking answers to their questions about credit scores, when a debt is considered delinquent and placing alerts on credit reports due to fraud or identity theft.
