Types of Identity Theft

There are many different types of identity theft as personal information can be used in a variety of ways for illicit gain. The illegal use of other people’s personal information for profit has affected a broad range of areas, such as:

  • Financial identity theft – personal information is used to illegally obtain goods and services or credit
  • Medical identity theft – a person uses a false identity to obtain medical supplies or services
  • Criminal identity theft – a misrepresentation of a person’s identity to the police when arrested for a crime
  • Child identity theft – the clean records associated with a child’s Social Security number are used for illicit gains
  • Identity cloning – a person assumes another individual’s identity, usually for the purpose of concealment

All of these forms of identity theft will be prosecuted strictly if you are accused, and they carry severe penalties for those convicted of identity theft.
