Protect Yourself from Identity Theft
Your credit is only a small piece of your identity. It is extremely important, but so is your medical history and what about your criminal record and work history. Credit card fraud is only 28% of the problem. bank fraud is 18%, phone and utility fraud is 19%, employment related fraud is 13%, Government documents & benefits fraud is 8% and medical fraud is growing.
Do you have a criminal record? Are you sure? If a criminal has your name and address you might have one. You may not have done the crime, but if someone else gave your name and address to the police when they were arrested you may do part of their time. Imagine some drug dealer is caught. Most dealers don't carry and ID on them and if they have one it's probably not their real name, address and other identifying information. It could be yours. So, this person is arrested and processed by the police (with your identity) and released until their trial date. They don't show for their court date and a warrant is issued for YOU! Now your out with your family and are pulled for a traffic violation and the next thing you know your in cuffs in front of your kids.
