    Someone becomes a victim of identity theft every 1.9 seconds. Millions of people are affected every year by frauds and scams delivered by text messages, emails, or phone calls that seem to be sent by legitimate organizations.

    Identity theft occurs when someone uses another person's personal data without their permission to commit fraud or other crimes. Types of identity crimes include opening fraudulent credit card accounts, illegally withdrawing funds from bank accounts, opening new loans, filing false unemployment benefits and illegal income tax refunds.
