Former Paralegal Writes Identity Theft Book
Former Massachusetts real estate paralegal turned consumer advocate Denise Richardson
spent 15 difficult years restoring her credit after she became a victim of identity theft. She turned her bad experience into a positive situation, sharing her story in a consumer handbook, Give Me Back My Credit
(Infinity Publishing, 2006). She urges people to become more knowledgeable about their own credit history, including accessing their free credit report once a year at Annualcreditreport.com
, in order to avoid becoming victims themselves.
“It’s just a known fact that as the economy goes south, crime goes north,” Richardson said. “There are more innovative ways to scam us, so people have to be more suspicious and less open to people who are soliciting them.”
