Iden­ti­ty fraud hap­pens to every­one. So what do you do when it’s your turn?

Increas­ing­ly, iden­ti­ty theft is a fact of life. With the breach­es of huge orga­ni­za­tions like Tar­get, Ash​ley​Madi​son​.com, JPMor­gan Chase, Sony, Anthem, and even the Unit­ed States Office of Per­son­nel Man­age­ment, more than a bil­lion per­son­al records have already been stolen, and chances are good that you’re already in har­m’s way.

This does­n’t mean there’s no hope. Your iden­ti­ty may get stolen, but it does­n’t have to be a life-chang­ing event. Adam Levin, a long­time con­sumer advo­cate and iden­ti­ty fraud expert, pro­vides a method to help you keep hack­ers, phish­ers, and spam­mers from becom­ing your prob­lem. With a clear­head­ed, prac­ti­cal approach, Swiped is your guide to sur­viv­ing the iden­ti­ty theft epi­dem­ic. Even if you’ve already become a vic­tim, this strate­gic book will help you pro­tect your­self, your iden­ti­ty, and your sanity.
