Identity Theft

Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America! It occurs when personal identifying information is stolen and used to gain access to a person’s financial accounts. The information is then used to illegally open new credit or financial accounts, apply for loans or Social Security benefits, rent apartments, buy cars, and set up utility accounts.
