IS IT 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 occurred.
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 work:
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.
