Thieves Steal Your Identity?
One of the first questions a victim of identity theft asks themselves is, “Why would someone want my identity?” For an identity thief, opening credit cards in your name, making fraudulent purchases, or using your personal information when being questioned by the police are just a part of a long list of what they are able to do with your stolen identity. Identity theft can happen to anyone at any time. Your identity is made up of multiple layers of information that includes more than just your Social Security number.
What can a thief do with your identifiable information?
Identity theft protection prevents your personal data from being used maliciously. Stop worrying about:
