Identity Theft

Identity Theft occurs when sensitive information like your Social Security number, drivers license number, account number, credit/debit card number, PIN, or password is used by someone pretending to be you. Criminals use this information along with your name and address to apply for credit, open accounts, withdraw money or make purchases for their own gain.
