Identity Theft

ACCC has joined forces with the Federal Trade Commission to provide the FTC's national campaign, Fighting Back Against Identity Theft.

The campaign aims to empower consumers to protect themselves against identity theft and to minimize the damage it can cause.

Each year, millions of Americans have their identity stolen. This can affect your credit and your finances. We urge you to take the first step in protecting yourself against identity theft by getting the information you need to be prepared.
