“I have admired the ITRC for many years,” said Ms. Grant. “As identity theft persists and evolves, the ITRC’s mission is more important than ever and I’m happy to work with its dedicated board and staff to ensure that consumers get the advice and assistance they need.”
The ITRC, founded in 1999, is a national non-profit organization established to support victims of identity theft in resolving their cases, and to broaden public education and awareness in the understanding of identity theft.
