It happens when someone steals your personal information - your social insurance number, driver's license number, health card number, credit card number, debit card, or your PIN number. Criminals get this information in a number of ways including stealing your cards, posing as an employer, credit union or utility company employee, grabbing information from web sites that are not secure, sorting through garbage, or using devious ways to find out you PIN number. It can happen to anyone.
In the course of a busy day people use an ATM to get money for groceries, charge tickets to a hockey game, mail their tax returns, call home on their cell phones or apply for a new credit card. WE don't give these everyday transactions a second thought. But someone else does - someone who is interested in using these everyday transactions to steal your personal information and use it to commit fraud or theft.
How Identity Thieves Get Your Personal Information:
- They steal wallets and purses containing your identification, credit and debit cards.
- They steal your mail, including your debit and credit card statements, pre-approved credit offers, telephone calling cards and tax information.
- They complete a change of address form to divert your mail to another location.
- They rummage through your garbage or the garbage of businesses for personal data.
- They fraudulently obtain your credit report by posing as a landlord, employer or someone else who may have a legitimate or legal right to the information.
- They get your business or personnel records at work.
- They find personal information in your home.
- They use personal information your share on the Internet.
- They buy your personal information from "inside" sources. Ex: dishonest store employee.
