Identity Theft is a serious problem that can negatively affect your credit rating and create a hardship for you and your family. Identity theft occurs when someone tries or actually does defraud you by using your personal information such as your name and/or date of birth. It also applies to someone using your social security number, driver’s license number or financial institution account number.
