ACTIVEOutdoors, a Texas company, recently sent important notice letters to persons who purchased Idaho hunting or fishing licenses before 2007. The letters, dated September 19th, concern a data breach that occurred at ACTIVEOutdoors—a vendor of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.
A copy of the letter from ACTIVEOutdoors and information about the data breach is available on the Department’s website.
AllClear ID is offering free credit monitoring and identity repair services to affected residents. Details regarding the offer, including instructions for signing up, are outlined in the letter you received.
The Attorney General provides helpful information about how to protect yourself from identity theft and what to do if you become a victim. The Idaho Coalition Against Identity Theft, a group of government agencies and businesses, also provides valuable information for identity theft victims.
If you have further questions about the data breach, the Department of Fish and Game has provided more information, also at its website, listed above.
