Your Financial Fitness, I'm Deborah Wetzel. Identify theft is a menacing crime, leaving victims to sort out their credit histories, close payment card accounts and request new Social Security numbers. Victims cite the amount of time and effort it takes to remedy the situation as their biggest problem. Now, Rosetta Jones, director of corporate relations for Visa, tells us where you can turn for help.

(Jones) At Visa, we recognize that identity theft is an unfortunate crime of great inconvenience. So, we've partnered with consumer group, Call for Action, to give people a place to turn. By calling 1-866-ID-HOTLINE, victims can talk to trained volunteers and obtain the assistance they need to get their lives back in order. Ultimately, no one should have to deal with the aftermath of this crime alone.

Visa and Call for Action have also developed tips to help consumers safeguard themselves from identity theft. For more information or to access prevention tips, log onto callforaction.org.
