"This is a wonderful, brief, but very informative video. Nice job! I have seen commercials for expensive insurance you can purchase to protect yourself from identity theft, but these simple steps are so much easier and cheaper to implement! I have heard a number of stories about victims of identity theft, and I know that I would not want to be one of them."

"My dad and my aunt have both had to deal with stolen credit cards, and it is not a fun thing to fix. I know how hard it is on everybody, especially for the person who owns the card. My mom just had fraud reported on her credit card right before Christmas of this past year, and she just got her new card in the mail yesterday. It was a real pain for all of us. Thank you for the informational video, it really opened my eyes to all the places Identity thieves look."
