Is identity theft the same thing as credit card fraud?

  • Identity theft is more than just credit card fraud. It’s the fraudulent use of personally identifiable information (PII) by a thief for the purpose of obtaining goods, services, and/or employment, committing a crime, gaining a benefit, or hiding a real identity.

    It can include a consumer’s name, Social Insurance number, date of birth, address, driver’s license number, telephone number, passport information, birth certificate information, student transcript data, medical record information, and more.
