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.

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