Identity Theft Archives

The deceased may suffer from identity theft, too

It's been a trying and stressful few years as your family watched your fun-loving, intelligent and physically active father deteriorate to a shell of his former self after the onset of dementia. Now, he has died. You've made the funeral arrangements, probated his Will, held an estate sale, put the family home on the market, and distributed his assets. There are so many things a family must do in this situation, but there's one that often gets overlooked.

Other Types of Identity Theft

Identity theft may occur in many ways.  Last week's blog talked about medical identity theft. There are many other types of information that a thief can take such as stealing your credit or debit card numbers (also called skimming), stealing your wallet or purse, which contains identification and credit cards, stealing your mail and items out of your trash (known as dumpster diving), or stealing records from your place of employment.

Identity Theft of Medical Information

Identity theft is a growing problem today, especially in the area of medical information. It occurs when someone other than you uses your name or health insurance information to obtain medical care. You need to protect yourself and your medical information.
