What exactly is Identity Theft?
Identity theft refers to crimes where someone poses as you. They may use your credit card, drivers license, social insurance number, or other personal identification numbers to commit fraud or other criminal activity.
This type of crime is on the rise in Canada. It takes only a few hours for a thief to assume your identity, but it can take months and sometimes years to restore your name and your credit.
