Protect yourself from identity theft

Berks-Lehigh Regional Police recently issued a Community Message via Nixle that an individual was going door-to-door asking questions of homeowners regarding the Parkland and Northwestern Lehigh school districts.

In this case, the man turned out to be a legitimate salesman.

I recently experienced something similar, except the man at my door was asking to see my electric bill.

According to Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda L. Kelly, identity fraud is the fastest growing crime in America, affecting 9 million Americans every year.
