What is Identity Theft?
When you are a victim of identity theft someone else has used your information/identity as if it were their own. There are different types of identity theft and there is a different resolution process for each. The ITRC is a 501(c)3 non-profit established to support victims of identity theft in resolving their cases, and to broaden public education and awareness in the understanding of identity theft, data breaches, cyber security, scams/fraud and privacy issues. The ITRC victim assistance guide can be a great place to start in helping you with identity theft. If you aren’t sure about what you need, you can call the ITRC toll-free call center at 888-400-5530 for one-on-one assistance.
