A Credit.com story this week touched on the idea that Millennials are more protective of their social media activities than their identities. However, identity theft has serious consequences for consumers and their finances, as many media outlets have highlighted in recent stories, citing Credit.com’s experts.
Adam Levin, Credit.com chairman and co-founder, spoke to reporters about a slew of identity theft issues. Fox Business News interviewed Adam about risks associated with job searches, during which individuals may give out a lot of personal information and become targets for fraud (@KateRogersNews).
For an article in Ebony, Adam provided general tips for protecting yourself against identity theft (@EBONYMag), but he talked on a local level for a Dallas Morning News story about a Texas neighborhood that was seemingly a target for systemic identity theft (@dallasnews). In a piece from ABC News, Adam noted ways to safely use a smartphone and minimize risk for identity theft (@ABC), and he also spoke to Bankrate for a story on protecting teens from identity theft (@bankrate).
Credit.com Director of Consumer Education Gerri Detweiler also talked about teenage finance in an interview. She talked to TODAY about how teens are better at managing credit than some assume (@TheConsumerman).
