Veterans and identity theft Twitter chat

You probably know a few veterans. You might even be a vet yourself. If so, you’ll want to get some valuable tips from the FTC’s Military Consumer campaign, the Department of Veteran Affairs and the US Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). We’re joining forces for a Twitter chat about how vets can protect themselves against identity theft and IRS imposter scams – and how to use Identitytheft.gov to recover from this crime. Follow @MilConsumer and be part of the conversation at #VeteranIDTheft tomorrow, Tuesday, December 8 at 1:00 pm (ET).

I would like to promote this, is there any way to see a preview of the information to be shared?

During the Twitter chat, the presenters will give tips from information in the sites  http://www.va.gov/identitytheft/ and identitytheft.gov  about how vets can protect themselves against identity theft and IRS imposter scams, and how to use Identitytheft.gov to recover from this crime.

I get redirects daily and have difficulty paying bills and doing my job. I have Chinese, Russian, and many more 3rd party licenses on all devices with international browsers and can't make it stop. I get phishing emails and phone calls daily. This has been going on for 2 years and I get no help. Where can a Minnesota girl get help to make this stop?

This video has ideas about what to do if you think your computer has a virus. The FTC has more information about how to secure your computer in onguardonline.gov.

As gov employee, virus scanners are not going to help. Exchange server appears corrupt. IT has issued approx 26 laptop computers to me in less than 2 years. The pc security center breaks away. I get cert and program errors every day at work and no one fixes the problem. I feel isolated with no support and employer acts like I am hacker. I have no PDF security on docs. How can I get help?
