Identity Theft Protection


What is Identity Theft?

Identity theft is a crime in which an imposter gains access to another’s information, such as Social Security or credit card numbers, and uses them for personal gain.  Identity theft might be the result of a lost or stolen purse, stolen mail, documents taken from your trash, a data breach, computer virus or telephone scam.  It can result in check and/or credit card fraud and many other types of identity fraud that can drain your financial accounts, ruin your credit, endanger your employment and cost you money to repair.

Will YOU become a victim of Identity Theft?

According to Javelin Strategy & Research, 2010 Identity Fraud Survey Report, Identity Theft is on the rise for the second year in a row.  In 2009, more than 11 million Americans became victims of identity fraud, up nearly 10 million in 2008.
