You can never tell the day or time when someone will steal your identity. ID theft is on the rise, which is why credit monitoring companies are in growing demand. In part 1 of Top Credit Monitoring companies, three credit monitoring companies were listed including Identity Guard, Lifelock and Identity Force. In part 2, we’ll cover what identity thieves look for.
ID theft thieves look for:
- User names, passwords and PIN numbers
- Social Security numbers
- Phone and utility account numbers
- Bank and credit numbers
- Driver’s license and passport numbers
- And, more.
When an ID thief locates one of the things listed above, they use it to control current bank, loan and other accounts.
