Golden 1 Offers 8 Tips to Increase Identity and Financial Protection

As consumers increasingly rely on mobile and online banking tools, it’s easy to fall prey to identity thieves seeking to steal financial information.

Approximately 17.6 million people averaged a loss of $1,343 to identity thieves in 2014, with 86 percent of instances involving a victim’s existing accounts rather than newly created ones.[1].

April is Financial Literacy Month, and part of being financially literate is ensuring your financial information is secure. There are several steps consumers can take to mitigate crime and ward off identity thieves, both on and offline.

1.     Keep your computer hardware and software up to date. Make sure your computer’s operating system has all the necessary antivirus updates and upgrades. This includes Wi-Fi and broadband connections.

Second Yolo County Fentanyl Death

Second Yolo County Fentanyl Death

To date, Yolo County Health & Human Services has received reports of three drug overdoses by residents in Davis, West Sacramento and Woodland associated with ingestion of counterfeit prescription pain pills containing fentanyl; two of which resulted in death.

Regionally, there have been 53 known overdoses and 13 deaths of individuals who may have believed they were consuming the prescription painkiller Norco (acetaminophen/hydrocodone), a commonly abused prescription painkiller.  Initially, health officials believed the overdoses were caused by taking tablets or capsules of Norco that was laced with fentanyl.  Now it is believed that fentanyl pills made to look like Norco tablets are being sold on the street.  Fentanyl is a highly potent, fast acting opiate that is approximately 100 times more powerful than heroin.
