WASHINGTON (12/23/08)--The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), along with the federal bank and thrift regulatory agencies, Monday announced publication of a revised identity theft brochure to assist consumers in preventing and resolving identity theft. The updated brochure, “You Have the Power to Stop Identity Theft,” focuses primarily on Internet “phishing” by describing how phishing works, offering ways to protect against identity theft, and detailing steps to follow for victims of identity theft. The brochure includes contact information for three major credit bureaus, where to report suspicious e-mails, and where to access additional information. The brochure is available to download from the websites of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, NCUA, and Office of Thrift Supervision.
