Identity Theft Lawyers: How to recover your reputation and reparations.
Imagine - you are at the supermarket checkout line. You swipe your card, and as the cashier’s smile turns into a disconcerted and worried look, your stomach drops. “Unfortunately, your payment has been declined…”
Hurriedly you open your banking app, only to see that your account has been completely emptied!
Immediately, you phone your financial institution, only for the representative to explain how YOU spent all of your money earlier that day using your card which was present during the transaction, even signing your name on the receipt.
At this moment, the representative speculates that you may have been a victim of Identity Theft.
What Is Identity Theft?
As Federal Law describes, “Identity theft and identity fraud are terms used to refer to all types of crime in which someone wrongfully obtains and uses another person's personal data in some way that involves fraud or deception, typically for economic gain.”
For someone who is intending to defraud an individual, there is a multitude of ways to steal your personal information and begin to take over your identity. Some of these methods include:
- Hacking your personal devices
- Scouring the garbage for discarded mail or other records
- Stealing or redirecting your mail to an alternate address
- Data breaches of financial and retail institutions
- Internet Phishing scams
- Pickpocketing wallets or purses
- Telecom scams
