How to Prevent Identity Theft
Identity theft is when someone steals your personal information like your full name, date of birth, address, and social security number, usually for fraudulent purposes. Having obtained your personal details, the thief can now apply for credit cards, loans, medical services, and even file for tax returns in your name. These actions could impact your credit rating and often go unnoticed for a long time. In fact, you might be completely unaware that your identity has been stolen until your loan application gets rejected on grounds of bad credit or you receive a credit card bill for a card you don’t own.
