Identity Theft Protection

Don’t think you need identity theft protection? Think again.

A recent study found that identity fraud scams cost Americans around $56 billion in 2020, with close to 49 million consumers falling victim. Rampant data breaches, along with vishing and phishing attacks and other methods of personal information theft, are putting consumers at great risk of identity fraud. It can happen to anyone— regardless of your age and income, where you live, or how careful you are. That’s why Deseret First is proud to partner with NXG Strategies, who offers robust recovery solutions. Their recovery advocates stand ready to assist you in the detection, investigation and remediation of identity fraud incidents.
