Identity theft is in Portage la Prairie.  That was the message Portage RCMP Constable Stephen Senuita shared with Chamber of Commerce members at the chamber's quarterly luncheon this afternoon.  Senuita says Portage has experienced relatively low numbers of identity theft and fraud, however it is here and we need to remain vigilant on the matter.  He lists cheque and credit card fraud as the most common cases occurring in our city and says protecting your information is the best way to avoid becoming a victim of identity theft.  If you are taken advantage of Senuita advises you to contact the RCMP.
