Winning the fight against identity theft.
Where is your identity right now?
Bits, bytes and pieces of personal data – your name, Social Security number, credit card accounts and more – are on file with businesses and government agencies, printed on letters passing through the mail, stored in your computer and traveling in your purse or wallet. Physically, you're in only one place at one time. But virtually, information about you is everywhere.
When someone illegally obtains some of this personal information – such as your Social Security number, bank account number or other identification – and uses it to open new accounts or initiate transactions in your name, it is referred to as identity theft. Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States.
