Common Scams: ID Theft


Anyone can be the victim of identity theft, regardless of age, gender, or economic status. The good news is that there are ways to reduce your risk, and steps to take if you’ve had your information compromised.

Personal Information

First and foremost, it’s important to protect your personal information, including your:

  • Social Security Number
  • Driver’s license number
  • Date of birth
  • Passwords
  • Account Numbers
  • Address

While one of these things on its own may not be enough to impersonate you, by combining several pieces of information, an identity thief could be successful.

Protecting Yourself

Steps to keep your information safe may include:
