College students easy target for ID theft

On average it can take a college students 132 days before they realize they have become an ID theft victim, says Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray, in a local news report.

“For persons ages 18-24, its takes up to five times longer to discover that their identity and their credit score may have been damaged,” added Cordray.

He recommends that students monitor bank accounts and credit card statements for suspicious activity and check credit reports once a year, even if they do not have any open accounts. “Students in dorms should lock up important documents and never loan debit or credit cards to friends,” he added.

The Ohio attorney general ended by suggesting students to route sensitive mail to their parent’s home or a post office box, instead of school mailboxes.
