Identity Theft (IDT)
Identity Theft could literally bring the victim’s life to a screeching halt. Unfortunately, most Identity Theft Protection companies focus advertisements on protecting your financial identity and money…
Statistics support the fact an identity thief is most likely NOT interested in your money. These days, an impersonator is more likely to be an illegal alien trying to assimilate into society, someone with criminal warrants or perhaps, they’re not looking to conceal their identity but assume yours in hopes of obtaining medical treatment.
In instances of medical identity theft like this, the impostor accepts financial responsibility for the treatment they received and inadvertently triggers a modification to the victim’s permanent medical record. To make matters worse, the treatment obtained may have required the facility to notify relevant authorities, if the matter warranted such attention.
Impersonators often provide official looking identification consisting of the victims personally identifying information and their likeness (photo).
