Identity Theft

Identity theft occurs when someone wrongfully obtains and uses your personal information to commit fraud or theft or for other unlawful purposes.

By using your basic personal information such as name, address, social insurance number (SIN), date of birth and mother’s maiden name, identity thieves may gain access to bank accounts, apply for loans and credit cards or engage in criminal activity that ultimately becomes associated to you.
