Hopefully, you haven’t yet been the victim of identity theft (I have, for what it’s worth). But if you have, or if you like to plan ahead just in case, here’s a good place to start: the Texas Attorney General’s office has established a website featuring step-by-step instructions for reporting the problem, as well as tips for helping prevent the problem. Hey, there’s even a video with the AG himself and some victims providing helpful hints. This is one issue where a little planning almost certainly will help avoid the big problem. Take a look at the link and bookmark it. Just in case.
