Identity fraud is the actual deceptive use of the identity information of another person (living or dead) in connection with various frauds, That would include impersonating a person with all their credentials.

The only one I've seen is someone took $800 from me a few years ago.
The bank got my money back.

Since then I've been having a Lifelock membership, never had another problem...

I'm not sure how they got my information.

I remember the bank did show me how all the purchases I reported that were not mine, had been linked to the people that were finally caught..

You can get your card number stolen in so many ways now it's ridiculous.

I was phished almost a year ago for credit card fraud! Got it straightened out and filled all the reports and the guy was busted by the FBI. I caught it in time and stopped the ** from getting anything and just got a new card. Guy was slick but I got LifeLock also and haven't had any trouble since. They'll sell your info on the Dark web and get away with it. I'm just glad this ** got caught!

I am really surprised no one has ever tried to steal my identity. I can only imagine it is because if they did, they are intimidated by the idea of being so terribly cool.
