    These are the worst type of people out there. You literally ruin a persons life when you steal a person ID. This is so sad. These people should be thrown in a cell and locked up.

    I actually hear the question a lot...What is identity theft? If you are at any time trying to do ANYTHING under the assumed name of someone else you are unquestionably committing identity theft....Period! this is a fantastic article and I fully agree that we as consumers are extremely susceptible to the the clutches of identity theft. Please become aware of your surroundings and your digital environment so you don't have to feel the horrors of identity theft. Thanks.

    Identity theft is a form of stealing someone's identity in which someone pretends to be someone else by assuming that person's identity, typically in order to access resources or obtain credit and other benefits in that person's name. The victim of identity theft (here meaning the person whose identity has been assumed by the identity thief) can suffer adverse consequences if they are held accountable for the perpetrator's actions. Identity theft occurs when someone uses another's personally identifying information, like their name, identifying number, or credit card number, without their permission, to commit fraud or other crimes.;,'*

    Great article. It is good to see articles like this one that make you aware as to just how vulnerable we are to identity thieves. My friend was a victim, and it has taken him a lot of time and money to get things right.
