And to millennials who believe that they are relatively safe as they don’t have a robust financial health, Tara Zecevic, an Identity & Fraud expert from Equifax Inc, reminds that the young people are increasingly becoming a soft target for fraudsters.

“From a consumer point of view, there are three broad things they can focus on --be preventative, detect if something doesn’t look good and in the event of an incident, report it to the right authorities without delay,” she adds. Zecevic is currently the vice president for Global Identity, Fraud and Compliance at Equifax Inc.
