Identity Theft

Identity Theft

Identity thieves do not discriminate based on wealth.

Identify theft is not always about draining the victim’s bank account.  Sometimes, when accused of a crime or simply receiving a traffic ticket, the identity thief poses as the person from whom they stole an identity to law enforcement personnel.  This deception may remain undetected until the victim is arrested for failure to appear in court or their vehicle’s insurance premium goes up due to a traffic ticket of which they had no knowledge.

Many people do not consider themselves wealthy, and they are, in fact, living paycheck-to-paycheck.  It is a common misconception that low or moderate income exempts one from identity theft.  Sadly, many criminals could take a meager credit score and use it to finance a new automobile at an exorbitant interest rate, drive it off the lot and never make a single payment.  Everyone needs to be cautious with his or her personal data.

Physical Identity Theft

Recently, there have been more stories in the media about identity theft, but it is nothing new, nor does the Internet cause it.  Criminals have invented many ways to steal from working people since the very first checking account was opened.  This section presents some ways that low-tech criminals can still steal an individual’s identity or resources.
