Identity Theft

Font Size Decrease Font SizeIncrease Font Size
Identity theft usually involves the taking of unique, personal information such as:
  • Social Security number
  • Bank account or credit card number
  • Telephone calling card number

In the worst cases, entire identities can be taken, enabling the criminals to run up large debts and commit crimes while using the victim’s names. In these cases the victim faces not just the initial loss of funds, but additional financial costs associated with trying to restore his or her reputation in the community and correcting erroneous information for which the criminal is responsible.
