Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America today. Would you know what to do if it happened to you? The 5 major types of identity theft involve:
- Driver’s Licenses
Example- Getting pulled over for a minor traffic violation could result in your arrest if an identity thief’s unpaid tickets lead to a warrant issued under your name.
- Social Security Numbers
Example- An identity thief gets a job under your SSN resulting in issues concerning unreported income.
- Medical Information
Example- A doctor visit leads to the discovery of false information in your medical records or you may receive bills or collection calls for medical services never received.
- Character/Criminal Actions
Example- Identity thieves may commit crimes using your personal information. You could be arrested for crimes never committed, or a criminal history could surface on your employee background check.
- Financial Transactions
Example- Bank or credit card accounts opened under your name without your knowledge could result in collection calls or impact your credit report and score to the point you are denied a loan.
