A new website will help Hoosiers avoid becoming victims of identity theft.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller has unveiled a new tool to help Hoosiers in the fight against identity theft. It is a new state webpage that allows consumers to keep inventory of the contents of their purses or wallets if ever lost.

They can also store notes of all contacts with banks and police agencies. The toolkit also provides interactive tools and access to major credit reporting agencies. Zoeller says it also gives tips on how to protect yourself

“There‘s other tools that are pretty simple to use but it just gives you a step by step how to protect yourself and in the event that you think you‘ve been a victim of identity theft how to cure it,” said Zoeller.

The Attorney General‘s ID Theft Unit created the page. Nine million Americans fall prey to identity theft each year. There has been a 134 percent increase in complaints about identity theft in the past year.
