If your identity is stolen, it's more than an inconvenience, it puts your finances and credit rating at risk - and that's just the beginning. Find out what steps you can take to ensure your identity isn't stolen.

A identify theft workshop will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 18, at Trinity Lutheran Church, Third and Iron streets, Lehighton. The presentation is being offered by Susan E. Lovejoy of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.

The seminar is intended to educate people about financial decisions. It is broad in scope and does not consider individual personal financial situations.

Register at the door on Aug. 18.
