Although the 26 Red Flags rules are primarily applicable to financing institutions, United One has always had measures in place to prevent fraud and identity theft. With the onset of the new Red Flag criteria, we have adapted our procedures to address the concerns set forth therein as they would pertain to and effect our daily operations and interactions with our valued clientele. By so doing, we provide those parties that use United One as a vendor additional security and peace of mind knowing United One Resources acknowledges and has taken steps to ensure the integrity of confidential and sensitive information within our company.
Creditors and financial institutions are required to develop and implement an Identity Theft Prevention Program by August 1 2009. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has issued a list of 26 red flags to help give businesses a starting point in developing their program; this is not meant to be an all-inclusive checklist, but rather as a guideline to aid establishments in developing their program to suit the type, size, and complexity of their business.
Designed to fill the cracks in the system through which identity thieves could fraudulently pilfer the identities of others for their personal gain.
