What is Identity Theft?
Identity theft involves the unlawful acquisition and use of someone’s identifying information, such as:
- Date of Birth
- Social Security Number
- Mother’s Maiden Name
- Drivers License
- Bank or Credit Card Account Number
Thieves then use the information to repeatedly commit fraud in an attempt to duplicate your identity which may include opening new accounts, purchasing automobiles, applying for loans, credit cards, and social security benefits, renting apartments and establishing services with utility and telephone companies. It can have a negative effect on your credit and create a serious financial hassle for you.
