Identity Theft

What is Identity Theft? Identity theft occurs when a person's identity is stolen for the purpose of opening credit accounts, stealing money from existing accounts, applying for loans, even renting apartments or committing crimes.  Victims of identity theft often aren't aware that they've been targeted, until they find unknown charges on their bank or credit card statements, are called by a collections agency or are denied credit.  There are up to 10 million identity theft victims per year.
