In today’s age identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the U.S. With 13 million victims yearly, identity theft is increasingly becoming an industry that pays organized criminals billions of dollars every year. Criminals will use confidential information to create fake IDs and attempt to make purchases, set up accounts, and carry out business transactions using someone’s information. They may seek this information from various places, including banks, medical facilities, or homeowner’s trash cans.
