Identity Theft Protection
Can Identity Theft Really Happen to Me?
It’s possible you haven’t spent much time thinking about it, but Identity Theft is America’s fastest growing crime. Every two seconds in the United States an identity is stolen, resulting in more than $16 billion dollars of theft a year. In 2016, 15.4 million Americans fell victim to identity theft, largely as a result of stolen credit card and account information. In an era where more and more of our business is done and our information is stored online, cybersecurity is more important than ever.
What’s the Real Cost of Identity Theft?
Identity Theft might not be as scary as a violent crime in the physical world, they can nonetheless be very damaging. The most disturbing thing about identity theft is how often it goes undetected. People who don’t frequently check their credit scores or bank accounts may not notice that their funds are missing or their credit score has tanked for weeks, making the damage hard to undo.
The most common form of identity theft is new account fraud- in which someone uses your name, social security number, and address to apply for a loan. In many cases, these loans are stopped by the loan company when they call you and realize you didn’t apply for a loan, but the damage to your credit is already done at that point. If they don’t catch it, you could be on the hook for the money you didn’t ever receive! Make sure you and your family’s identities are safe with Experian’s IdentityWorks℠.
