Company safeguarding clients from ID theft

Guam - Advisors Unlimited is seeking the public's help in finding the people responsible for breaking into their Hagatna offices on Saturday.  President Frank Salas says an external hard drive containing confidential client information was stolen.  Salas says his clients' $25 million in assets are protected, but the company has asked their clients to take a proactive roll in protecting themselves from identity theft.

"Go to one of the credit bureaus and initiate what is known as a fraud alert. It will protect them from someone coming in and at least trying to get information on their records.  That's the initial step once we obtain the police report which hopefully will be in a few more days, sometime early next week we'll provide that to our clients," he told KUAM News.

With that police report, Salas says his client can go back and file a security freeze to add an even greater level of protection that is free to consumers.  Anyone with any information is asked to contact Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357).

Because of this incident, Advisors Unlimited is working to host identity theft seminars to teach residents how to protect themselves.
