What is Identity Theft?

Identity theft is a serious crime that occurs when someone else uses your personal information such as your name, Social Security Number, credit card information, driver’s license number or other identifying information without your permission.

Most of the time, this stolen information is used to obtain credit, merchandise or services in the name of the victim. But, in addition to running up debt, an imposter might provide false identification to police, creating a criminal record or leaving outstanding arrest warrants for the person whose identity has been stolen
