Hot Doc: Fraud and Scam Protection

Your Government Documents Librarian is excited about the excellent free resources available from our government and wants you to be, too!

The Federal Trade Commission and the United States Postal Inspection Service have wonderful information on how to get your credit report for free (really!), how to improve your credit score, and useful (and reliable!) information about credit cards, loans, etc. The Commission encourages you to report fraudulent claims of free credit reporting and advises about what you should look for once you get your free annual credit report. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look.

Fun video about truly free credit report!

List of radio broadcasts about avoiding scams in a multitude of industries and scenarios.

Get free credit report here. If you haven’t checked your credit this year, take the time to do so. If there is fraudulent activity in your name, you need to know about it!

We want you…to be an informed citizen! If you are interested in getting free government information about fraud, ID theft, credit reports, pre-texting, and more, ask for the Government Documents Librarian at the Information Desk in the Learning Commons!

Thanks!

Lori Gwinett, Government Documents Librarian
