Identity Theft Tips

Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personal information without your permission. Examples of personal information used to commit fraud or other crimes are your Social Security number, your name, address and credit card information.

Thieves get the personal information many ways including:

How can a person find out their identity was stolen?

The best way to find out is to look at your accounts and bank statements each month, and check your credit report on a regular basis. A person may also find out when bill collection agencies contact that person over debts that this person never incurred.

What a person should do if they are a victim of identity theft?
