Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personal identifying information like your name, Social Security number, or credit card number, without your permission, to commit fraud or other crimes .Victims are left with a bad reputation and with the complicated task of restoring their good names.

If the criminal takes steps to ensure that bills for the falsely obtained credit cards, or bank statements showing the unauthorized withdrawals, are sent to an address other than the victim's, the victim may not become aware of what is happening until the criminal has already inflicted substantial damage on the victim's assets, credit, and reputation.
