Church Events

Event to discuss identity theft

Practical ways to protect yourself from identity theft will be revealed at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe, 1110 Campus Drive, Suite C.

The program, "They Hijacked My Life!," features an exclusive filmed interview with identity-theft expert John Sileo.

"One in 10 households is affected by identity theft each year," said Sileo. "So in 10 years, you have a 100 percent chance of having your identity information breached."

Sileo is the author of "Stolen Lives: Identity Theft Prevention Made Simple" and regularly appears on NBC, ABC and Fox to provide tips and techniques for protecting confidential personal information from theft online, through the mail and elsewhere in life.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.

Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.

Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Craig Cable at (970) 292-4697 or
