What is identity theft?

Identity theft, also known as identity fraud, is a crime in which an imposter obtains key pieces of personally identifiable information, such as Social Security or driver's license numbers, in order to impersonate someone else. The information can be used to obtain credit, merchandise and services in the name of the victim, open debit or prepaid accounts, or to provide the thief with false credentials. In addition to running up debt and stealing from a victim’s accounts in rare cases, an imposter might provide false identification to police, creating a criminal record or leaving outstanding arrest warrants for the person whose identity has been stolen.
