Identity Theft Protection and Credit Protection

Identity theft and/or identity fraud happens when someone steals your personal information and uses it without your knowledge and permission. ID theft is a serious crime and can wreak havoc with your finances and credit history - and it takes time and money to resolve. According to Insurance Information Institute's 2015 Identity Fraud Study, $16 billion was stolen from 12.7 million U.S. consumers in 2014, compared to $18 billion and 13.1 million victims a year earlier. There was a new identity fraud victim every two seconds in 2014.

Even with a slight downward trend in ID theft, we here at Credit Info Center may talk a lot about repairing your credit, but ID theft goes hand-in-hand with credit repair. If you are a victim of ID theft, this can ruin your credit score. The following articles are meant to help you prevent ID theft from happening to you and to help you through it if it does happen to you or a family member.
