Identity theft is the illegal use of someone else’s personal identifiable information (PII)
with the intent to commit fraud or gain financial benefits in their name. If your identity or
the identity of your child has been stolen, identity thieves may open new credit
accounts, file fake tax returns, buy or rent property, or take out loans that wreak havoc
on your financial health and credit score.
It’s important to understand that identity theft can happen to anyone at any time. Your identity is built on multiple layers that include more than just your social security number. What we call your identity is the total collection of your personally identifiable information (PII). When they gain access to this information, they have the ability to, in essence, become you. If any of this information is stolen, we consider this a personal breach of your identity.
The more informed people like you are getting, the more creative thieves become.
