SAN DIEGO, Oct. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to the recent government shutdown, many government resources, including those which assist victims of identity theft, may be unavailable at this time.
During this interim period, the ITRC Victim Assistance Call Center is open and ready to assist callers who may be faced with issues of identity theft. The ITRC wants to ensure that victims nationwide are aware of our resources. Our call center and online resources at http://www.idtheftcenter.org remain available.
Our toll-free call center, 888-400-5530, is available from 7:30-4:30 PST. We will likely experience a high volume of calls which will increase consumer wait time; however, we are committed to responding to victims and consumers as quickly as possible.
