Nevada ranks high in identity thefts

Whoopee! Nevada’s in the top five states! Oh. Another bad list. The Silver State is the fifth highest in identity theft complaints per capita. Even worse, the complaints here have increased 12 percent over the previous year. This is not good. Perhaps you are cheered that our neighbor Arizona heads the list? Nevermind.

A 98-page report was released this morning by the Federal Trade Commission.

But more helpful might be the tips for protection found at the Identity Theft Knowledge Center.

Shred, baby, shred!
