FDIC Educates with Video
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has uploaded an educational video on its website about identity theft and how not to be an online victim. The detailed presentation covers brief introductions to identity theft, electronic scams, information and computer protection and help for victims. Also, one can also know what steps to take to lessen the damages if victimized. The FDIC preserves and promotes public confidence in the U.S. financial system by insuring deposits in banks and thrift institutions for at least $100,000; by identifying, monitoring and addressing risks to the deposit insurance funds; and by limiting the effect on the economy and the financial system when a bank or thrift institution fails.
