How to Protect Your Identity

This morning, Laura Dobos from the Vermont Attorney General's office presented a program on Identity Theft and Telemarketing Scams. Laura gave us some general tips for dealing with telemarketers, and ideas on how to protect our documents, credit card information, and other personal information. For those of you who may have missed this program, Laura has left some handouts which are available at the library. The presentation was also taped for SAPA TV and will be aired later this spring. We've asked Laura to do a repeat of this program on a Saturday in the Fall if we have enough interest, so let the folks at the main desk know if you'd like to attend a program on protecting your identity.
