Identity Theft

What is Identity Theft?

Identity theft is a serious crime. It can disrupt your finances, credit history, and reputation, and take time, money, and patience to resolve. Identity theft happens when someone steals your personal information and uses it without your permission.

  • calls from debt collectors about debts that don't belong to you
  • a notice from the IRS that someone used your Social Security number
