How do thieves get my information?

  • There are numerous ways that thieves can obtain personal identifiers. Some are by: 

    • Stealing physical items such as mail, wallet/purse, smart phone, trash, etc.
    • Stealing digital data as when a business computer system is breached, your computer is tainted with malware or a skimmer is placed on a payment card reader.
    • Gathering personal information from social networks and data aggregator websites.
    • Phishing schemes – tricks to get you to reveal information.
