The Jasper County Sheriff’s Office has recently received several reports of identity thefts and scams. Identity thieves are exploiting the current pandemic. We’ve seen several identity thefts related to bogus unemployment benefit claims. Smalls businesses are also becoming identity theft victims due to small business grant opportunities related to COVID-19. If you become a victim of identity theft you should contact your bank and creditors and make them aware. The federal Trade Commission offers several services to help recover and place alerts on your identity at IdentityTheft.gov.
