    Government Identity Theft

    As National Cybersecurity Awareness Month moves forward, it’s important for individuals and businesses to understand that identity theft is not one single crime. While it is broken up into different categories based on what the thief did with the victim’s information—like open a new credit card account, buy a car, or seek medical care—it’s also important to understand that there’s a lot of crossover potential. An identity thief can drain your existing check account, rent an apartment, and even get a job in your name, all of which fall under different categories.
