Welcome to the National Support Network for Victims of Identity Theft, the first online forum where victims and consumers can get real help, share their stories, vent a little, and get advice from a great team of qualified experts.

Whether you’re a victim of the latest data breach, you’re not really sure, or just need some advice, we’re here for you

Here’s how it works

  • You can post a question on anything related to identity theft, fraud, scams, recent data breaches. You can ask for advice or help, general or specific. And there are no dumb questions.
  • You can comment on other people’s experiences.
  • You can share your own story and experiences, and we hope you will.
  • You can vent, as loud and as long as you want, about how all these crimes and breaches affect you.
  • You can get answers directly in the forum, from real experts, or you can speak directly with a counselor by phone.

How to get started

  • First you have to register. That’s mainly to keep the scammers and spammers at bay.
  • We ask you for your name (it can be fake) and your email address (to notify you whenever there are any responses to your postings.
  • We only display whatever first name you choose. Nothing else. We never share your information, including email address, with anyone.

Once you’re registered you can post anything you want

  • But…. it won’t be posted immediately. We review every single post first to make sure it’s not a scam or spam, and that you’re not revealing anything about yourself that you shouldn’t.
  • Once the post is approved (usually in a few minutes), your post will go live, you’ll get an email notification, and you’ll be able to view and respond to any other comments.
  • Everyone designated as a Moderator is a member of our team, a vetted volunteer with a deep background in areas like identity theft, fraud, cybercrime, scams, and law enforcement.
