Identity Theft Prevention

Identity theft occurs when a criminal uses another person’s personal information to take on that person’s identity. Identity theft is much more than misuse of a Social Security number—it can also include credit card and/or mail fraud. If you think you may be a victim of identity theft contact the WPD at 507-835-0500.
