How to check for identity theft?

If you find yourself in one of the following situations, it may be a sign of identity theft.

Data breach notice

01

You’re notified that your personal information was exposed in a data breach

02

Bank account inaccuracies

You notice withdrawals from your account you don’t recognize

03

Credit problems

You notice errors on your credit report or get credit denial

04

Healthcare service mishaps

You get bills for services you didn’t use or suddenly reach your benefit limit

06

Debt notifications

You get calls from debt collectors 

07

Shopping oddities

You receive bills for goods you didn't order

05

Law enforcement troubles

You receive an arrest warrant or find out about traffic violations on your record

08

Tax inaccuracies

You find out someone has filed a tax return in your name

How can your data be used?

If a criminal gets access to your data, it can result in different kinds of identity theft.

Financial identity theft

Most often, identity thieves want to profit off you by using your personal information documents. Financial identity theft includes opening bank accounts in your name, withdrawing money from your existing accounts, getting credit cards and loans, and so on.

Medical identity theft

A crook can use your health insurance and other personal data to get medical services or prescription drugs. Apart from draining your insurance, medical identity theft may be risky for your health. For example, if a thief’s records get mixed with yours, you might receive medicine to which you’re allergic.

Employment identity theft

Your documents may be used for a job application by someone who can’t get a job otherwise. This distorts your employment history and may have a negative impact on your further job-seeking efforts, applications for credit, benefits, and so on.

Tax identity theft  

This happens when a criminal files a tax return in your name and gets the money. Consequently, you became unable to file a tax return yourself. Moreover, if someone got a job with your ID, taxation may get messy, as there will be records of income from an employer you don’t work for.

Criminal identity theft

A lawbreaker can give your personal information or stolen documents to the police when caught. This way, you will be deemed a criminal. This may negatively affect your background checks in the future causing you trouble to get a job, obtain credit, and so on.

Social Security identity theft

Social Security number is a crucial piece of information to commit the previously described identity-stealing crimes. For this reason, Social Security identity theft is often seen as a specific type of this offense. It’s relatively hard to obtain a new SSN, so it’s stressful for the victims to move on after the crime.

Child identity theft

Parents may request a Social Security number for the baby soon after it’s born. At the same time, it’s harder to reveal if there was an abuse of the child’s SSN. So it’s handy for criminals to perform child identity theft. With a kid’s ID, crooks can open bank accounts, apply for loans and benefits, and so on.

Synthetic identity theft

A thief can combine fake personal information with the stolen real one. This way synthetic identity theft is committed and a brand new identity is created. The goal of this activity is still the same - to get money, employment, or other benefits, flee from justice, and so on.

How to prevent identity theft?

Here are some useful tips to help you keep your identity and data safe:

Set up strong, unique passwords for all your accounts

Get reliable protection from viruses and phishing websites

Store your documents securely and don’t carry them around unless necessary

Secure your connection when you do banking and shopping

Enable mobile bank notifications to control your operations

Monitor your accounts for being affected by data breaches 

Review your credit reports at least three times a year

Check which personal information you share with apps
