LANSING - Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is sharing ways identity thieves will try to trick people into giving out their personal information.
Michigan Identity Theft Support (MITS) was launched by Attorney General Nessel in April as part of a continued commitment to support and protect Michigan consumers. MITS staff is dedicated to helping victims navigate the challenges of identity theft. The signs of identity theft, the various types of identity theft, and the steps to combat it are among the resources available to Michiganders on the MITS website.
For people who have reviewed the MITS resources and are still unsure of what to do and need to speak with someone, they can request a phone consultation online via this form.
"Identity thieves have some sophisticated ways to get your private information," Nessel said. "It's important Michigan consumers remain vigilant and spot these tricks to prevent falling victim to identity theft."
Earlier this month, Nessel reminded people to verify a license before hiring for home projects.
