Identity theft is a serious crime where someone unlawfully uses another person's personal information, such as Social Security numbers, credit card details, or bank account information, typically for financial gain. Recognizing the signs of identity theft is crucial for mitigating its impact and protecting oneself from further harm.


Common indicators of identity theft include unexpected charges on your bank statements, unfamiliar accounts or credit cards appearing on your credit report, and receiving bills or collection notices for services you did not use. Other warning signs can be notifications about unauthorized changes to your account information, being denied credit unexpectedly, or having your tax return rejected because a duplicate return was filed in your name.


To confirm if you are a victim of identity theft, closely monitor your financial statements and credit reports. If you notice any suspicious activity, report it immediately to your financial institutions, credit bureaus, and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Taking swift action can help contain the damage and start the process of reclaiming your identity.
