What is Identity Theft? Wikipedia states that “Identity theft occurs when someone uses another person’s name, identifying number, or credit card number, without their permission, to commit fraud or other crimes.” This can happen when your name, social security number and other personal information get in the possession of the wrong people. With that information, they are able to create havoc by running up charges on credit cards, or open new accounts in your name, withdraw cash from your bank accounts or get medical care using your health insurance.
