Identity Theft

The Internet has provided us with a lot of conveniences. Unfortunately, it has also increased our vulnerability to identity theft. Identity theft robs victims of time, money, and peace of mind. Most identity thieves use the Internet to steal personal information. But, an identity thief can also obtain personal data from trash cans and other unsecured locations. This personal information allows thieves to access bank accounts, medical records, personal emails, and many other kinds of private data. FindLaw's Identity Theft section provides information about preventing and detecting identity theft. You can also find articles on what to do if your identity is stolen and tips to help protect your identity.
