IDENTITY THEFT OR IDENTITY FRAUD?
This can often be confusing. Especially when
you think you've been the victim of Identity Theft but the institution you
are dealing with is calling it Identity Fraud or something else. Don't be
alarmed, there are many different terms used to describe the crime of
Identity Theft. Depending on whom you talk to and/or what instrument was used
to perpetrate the fraud, Identity theft could be referred to as any of the
following: ID Theft, Identity Fraud, Bank Fraud, Account Takeover, Credit
Card Fraud, Criminal Identity Theft, Check Fraud, New Account Fraud, or Wire
Fraud. Although different institutions, companies or agencies may use these
terms, do not be confused. The crime is still Identity Theft!
According to the FBI, anyone can fall victim
to this crime because personal information is so readily available through
new technology in recent years. A recent General Accounting Office
report shows that almost a Million Americans fall victim to identity theft
every year. And that statistic is likely rather low. Some victims
don't know they're being taken while others are too embarrassed to do
anything about it.
Although this crime is committed in many
forms such as credit card number fraud, social security number theft and
other similar methods, the unsuspecting victims pay a high price to regain
their identity and repair the damage. Identity theft can take up to 2
years to discover and 2 years to resolve. In fact, you could be a victim
right now and not know. Victims spend literally 24 months and sometimes
more than $2,200 just to restore their credit rating after the theft has
HOW CAN SOMEONE STEAL YOUR IDENTITY?
By co-opting your name, Social Security
number, credit card number, or some other piece of your personal information
for their own
use. In short, identity theft occurs when someone appropriates your personal
information without your knowledge to commit fraud or theft.
Here are some ways that identity thieves
ØThey open a new
credit card account, using your name, date of birth, and Social
Security number. When they use the credit card and don’t pay the bills, the
delinquent account is reported on your credit report.
ØThey call your credit card issuer
and, pretending to be you, change the mailing address on your credit card
account. Then, your imposter runs up charges on your account. Because
your bills are being sent to the new address, you may not immediately
realize there's a problem.
cellular phone service in your name
ØThey open a bank
account in your name and write bad checks on that account.
In Identity-theft cases, the victim often
has to prove his or her innocence. This shocks most new identity-theft
victims. They naturally expect the police, the credit grantors, the
credit-reporting agencies and others in high places to help them. Maybe it
should be that way…but often it isn't.
