Identity Theft

Identity theft occurs when someone acquires your personal information, such as your social security number, to use, sell, or transfer the information without your approval in order to commit fraud or other illegal activities, typically for financial gain.

Identity theft can happen to anyone. Reduce your risk and if you think someone is using your personal information to make purchases, open accounts, get medical services, or file taxes, report it!
