Identity theft hotline opens up the phones

AUSTRALIA now has its own national identity theft support service to help victims across the nation who have been targeted by cyber-criminals reclaim their lives.

The Sunshine Coast-based centre, iDcare, offers a toll-free national anonymous telephone service.

The service works with community members, without charge, to develop tailored and practical response plans to get people back on track following an event that threatens their personal information.

iDcare managing director, and former Australian Crime Commission expert, Dr David Lacey said on Monday to have one provider that cuts across all levels of government and industries and works with individuals to build a tailored response to their circumstances was unique.

"We respond to clients from Cairns to Esperance, of all ages, and respond to all forms of identity theft, online and physical," he said

"A measure of our success is the ability to cut down the complexity of how our clients need to respond, to share critical knowledge, and get them feeling back in control." 

iDcare can be contacted on 1300 432 273 (1300 IDCARE) from 8am to 6pm (AEDT) weekdays.
