Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes. It can occur when a criminal steals personal identifying information such as name, birth date, Social Security number, or your mother’s maiden name and uses it for their own gain. These thefts can occur through lost or stolen credit or debit cards, non-secure online transactions, personal information recovered from your garbage, and most frequently, stolen mail from your mailbox.
