The Federal Trade Commission has produced a Web page devoted to helping victims remedy the effects of identity theft. Called Take Charge: Fighting Back Against Identity Theft, it describes immediate steps to take if one is a victim of identity theft, tells how to resolve specific types of identify theft, and outlines ways to avoid recurrences later on.
