Identity roadshow rolls into Albury

Riverina residents are benefitting from the knowledge and advice of identity experts as ID Support NSW rolls into town for the final leg of its regional roadshow.

Following sessions in Griffith earlier this week, yesterday marked the second day of events in Wagga Wagga, with sessions also being run in Albury today.

Locals will learn about the risks of identity theft and how to replace documents such as a driver licence, photo card or birth certificate if they are stolen or fraudulently obtained.

“From Broken Hill to Bankstown and Wagga Wagga to Wilcannia, every person in NSW should have the resources and skills to keep themselves protected from identity crime,” said Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government, Jihad Dib.

“Identity theft can be distressing, but recovering from it shouldn’t be. ID Support NSW offers victims a clear way to recover and stay secure.”

He said the roadshows are helping young families and retirees across the state to protect themselves from identity crime by learning how to create stronger passwords, spot a scam and how to replace identity documents.

“The success of the roadshow is shown by the more than 1,550 people who have attended the events so far to learn about how they can stay safe from identity theft and remedy their credentials.”

“ID Support NSW believes in a no wrong doors policy which means if someone calls with an identity problem they’ll get help to find a solution,” the Minister said.

ID Support NSW provides people with a single front-door if their identity has been compromised and will work with them to help restore their documents and security of their identity.
