Identity Theft

Identity theft is the unlawful use of an individual's personal identification information. Identity thieves steal information such as your name, social security number, driver's license information, or bank and credit card accounts and use the information to establish credit, make purchases, apply for loans or even seek employment.

Victims of identity theft should obtain an Identity Theft Victim Kit, an all-in-one resource that provides victims with specific instructions for filing a police report and beginning to clear their names, by clicking here: http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/features/feature-0016-protect-your-identity-event-kit
