Identity Theft & Credit Card Fraud – How to Protect Yourself
Identity theft occurs when someone obtains your personal information, such as your credit card data or Social Security number, to commit fraud or other crimes….. The credit-card fraud occurs when a thief uses your credit card to make purchases. More serious is when someone uses your information to open accounts or take loans in your name. That’s when you’ll have to fight to get your credit restored and your name cleared, an arduous process that can take months or years to complete.
