According to the FBI identity theft is the fastest growing white-collar crime in the nation. It involves criminally using a person’s identifiers, which are acquired through various means, including your mailbox and computer. The thieves obtain your name, address and bank or credit card numbers or your social security number to take over your identity without your knowledge. Identity theft can cost you time and money. It can ruin your credit.
