Identity Theft is a crime in which an impostor obtains key pieces of personal
identifying information (PII) and uses the information for personal gain. These crimes
vary in nature based on the intellect and skill of the thieves. Thieves can access your
personal information by stealing your wallet or purse, pilfering your mail, sifting
through your garbage, infecting your computer with a virus, phishing your information
online, or by hacking into your personal information which is stored on hundreds and
thousands of databases across the country.
