What Exactly Is Identity Theft?
Identity theft is a crime, and it occurs when someone steals your private identifying information such as a social security number, credit card number or debit card number. It can also occur when a thief somehow assumes your identity or even obtains credit in your name. Clues that you have become a victim of identity theft include failing to receive bills or other mail, receiving credit cards that you didn’t apply for, being denied credit for no apparent reason or even receiving calls or letters from debt collectors regarding items or services that you didn’t purchase.
