Identity Theft/ Financial Crimes
In the course of a busy day, you may
write a check at the grocery store, charge
tickets to a ball game, rent a car, mail your tax returns, change
service providers for your cell phone, or apply for a credit card.
Chances are you don't give these everyday transactions a second
thought. But an identity thief does.
Identity theft is a serious crime.
People whose identities have been stolen can spend months or years
- and thousands of dollars - cleaning up the mess the thieves have
made of a good name and credit record. In the meantime, victims of
identity theft may lose job opportunities, be refused loans for
education, housing, or cars, and even get arrested for crimes they
didn't commit. Humiliation, anger, and frustration are among the
feelings victims experience as they navigate the process of
rescuing their identity.
