Diane Jablonsky from the Federal Trade Commission visited West Geuaga High School to talk to the students about identity theft. She taught the students that they need to be careful with their social security and credit cards. She also explained that there is an identity theft in the United States every six seconds. For security she suggested that to get rid of papers that had important information on them, to use a cross shredder. When you are using your computer you should make sure you have a security code so that people won't be able to look at important information. Diane continued by suggesting that when filling out an online application that it is not necessary to give your social security number and that you can give it to your employer once you get the job. Every one that attended the event left with useful information and walked away with knowledge on the subject that will help them in the long run. She also gave information on how to get the pesky telemarketers to stop calling your house, just call 1-888-382-1222 and tell them to take you off the list, or go to www.donotcall.gov.
