YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office is helping residents keep their identities safe with a giveaway.

The office will be providing fee anti-theft credit card shields to Mahoning County residents to help protect them from possible consumer fraud.

The shields are designed to help safeguard information imbedded in the RFID chip on credit cards, debit cards, enhanced driver licenses, and U.S. passports.
