What is Identity Theft?

Identity theft is a crime where someone wrongfully obtains and uses another person’s identifying information. 

Types:

  • Mail/Data theft – mail theft from residences and personal spaces, theft of personal data in business transactions, theft from company or government databases.
  • E-mail phishing - "spoofed" emails that appear to belong to legitimate businesses and redirect consumers to a spoofed website that appears to be legitimate.
  • Pretexting - "pretext" phone calls, emails, text messages purporting to be from legitimate businesses asking for personal information.
