Quick-Start Shoreline Business Workshop Tuesday, March 13th

Sunday, March 11, 2012

The Tuesday Quick-Start Shoreline Business Workshop for start-up, existing or potential business owners will be held on March 13, 2012 from 12 noon to 1:30 pm at Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N.

Quick-Start Shoreline is presented by Shoreline Community College Small Business Accelerator and the City of Shoreline. The sessions are free and open to the public; feel free to bring a brown bag lunch or a snack.

Come to this compelling and informative workshop to learn about identity theft, what is being called the 'Silent Crime', what it is and how it affects every American and the world at large. Not only will you get a better understanding of the magnitude of this crime, but what it means to us as individuals, business owners and the community.

Topics to be discussed will be:
  • What exactly is IDT? Hint: it's more than just your credit!
  • Why it is happening and how it is being addressed by the local, state and national authorities.
  • Why just shredding documents isn't enough.
  • I have bad credit, nobody wants my identity", " I have IDT though my credit card company/bank/insurance carrier/etc." and other fallacies’ that mislead the public into a false sense of security.
  • Solutions available to combat this rampant crime.
  • What you can do to best protect yourself, and more.

Identity theft is out there because our identity is already out there. There is no prevention. Awareness and protection are our only defenses.
