Leave a comment

The Federal Trade Commission announced this week that it has created a guide to help attorneys and victim advocates provide legal assistance to victims of identity theft.

The guide includes step-by-step instructions for helping pro bono clients recover from identity theft and incorporates victims’ rights under various federal statutes. It also includes information about recovery from less common forms of identity theft, such as tax fraud, federal student loan fraud and medical ID theft. The guide includes sample dispute letters, checklists, affidavits, federal statutes and regulations, consumer education material, and links to online resources.
