The Red Flags Rule requires many businesses and organizations to implement a written Identity Theft  Prevention Program to detect the warning signs – or “red flags” – of identity theft in their day-to-day 
operations. By focusing on red flags now, you’ll be better able to spot an imposter using someone else’s identity to get products or services from you. As a practical matter, the Rule applies to you if you provide 
products or services and bill customers later. 

To find out if the Red Flags Rule applies to your business,  read Fighting Fraud with the Red Flags Rule: A How-To Guide for Business, a booklet published by the  Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The FTC, the federal agency that enforces a number of consumer protection laws, has designed this compliance template to help businesses and organizations at low risk for identity theft design their own Identity Theft Prevention Program. It has two parts: Part A to help you determine whether your business or 
organization is at low risk, and Part B to help you design your written Identity Theft Prevention Program if  your business is in the low risk category.

Medical identity theft, on the rise, can threaten lives as well as wallets

"Andrew Brooke’s family knew something was screwy when they got a collection notice for unpaid bills for treatment of his work-related back injury, which included large prescriptions of the controlled painkiller Oxycontin."

Please note the above story;

New credit cards rely on wireless radio frequency chips. Anyone can now purchase items just by waving a card near a wireless card scanner.

The problem is that anyone with a wireless scanner can pick up all of your card information and ID without even touching your card, even if it is inside your wallet or purse.... maybe even inside of your car.

Read the article above to find out more and how to protect your ID and credit card from wireless theft.

For more information about fraud and how to prevent it, go to Fraud Busters on Care2....
