Introducing PI Education‘s newest online course for professional investigators:
Conducting Identity Theft Investigations
Starting on January 15, 2015, PI Education, a continuing education provider for private investigators, will offer a new online course: Conducting Identity Theft Investigations was written by ID theft and data privacy expert, trainer, consultant and author, Carrie Kerksie of the Kerskie Group, Inc.
“Identity theft has become a global epidemic. Every three seconds, someone becomes a victim of identity theft. Most victims spend between 200-300 hours attempting to restore their identity. For many, their identities are never fully restored, and they find themselves becoming a victim multiple times. Most of this is due to a lack of understanding of their rights as a victim. Organizations know victims do not understand their rights and use this to their advantage. It is time for victims to have an advocate who understands their rights to restoration as well as the intricacies of the crime. Private investigators are the perfect solution to assist victims as well as help others reduce their risk of this potentially deadly crime.”
Conducting Identity Theft Investigations emphasizes the relationship between various types of identity theft and the methods used to steal identities. The course also offers an overview of investigation tools and techniques available to investigators, including security, monitoring, and restoration of a “stolen” identity.
