Don’t Lose Yourself! Those of us at the Kent Police Department who have dealt with victims of identity theft know how hard-hitting this crime is. Many don’t know they are a victim until they are turned down for credit or apply for a job involving a background check. Most don’t realize what a task it is to straighten their credit out. As a response to public outcry, the Washington State Legislature passed a new Identity Theft statute (Revised Code of Washington RCW 9.35 RCW 43.43.760 Please remember that most victims of other crimes experience the situation once. Victims of Identity Theft experience it over and over, repeatedly. Take the steps now to safeguard your well being and the well being of your family. You won’t be sorry. Written by Sergeant Jon Quackenbush Identity Theft What is it: Identity theft happens when a criminal obtains data that personally identifies you and then uses that for an illegal purpose - typically theft. The thief takes advantage of your good credit rating , and leaves behind bad credit in your name. Losses to consumers and businesses due to identity theft totaled $745 million in 1997 according to the Secret Service. Kent Police Detectives have seen a dramatic increase in the fraudulent use of stolen identity over the past three years. Identity theft is now a Felony under Washington State Law (RCW 9.35.020).

The Nature of the Problem
Identity theft has been referred to by some as the crime of the new millennium. It can be accomplished anonymously, easily, with a variety of means, and the impact upon the victim can be devastating. Identity theft is simply the theft of identity information such as a name, date of birth, Social Security number (SSN), or a credit card number. The mundane activities of a typical consumer during the course of a regular day may provide tremendous opportunities for an identity thief: purchasing gasoline, meals, clothes, or tickets to an athletic event; renting a car, a video, or home-improvement tools; purchasing gifts or trading stock on-line; receiving mail; or taking out the garbage or recycling. Any activity in which identity information is shared or made available to others creates an opportunity for identity theft. It is estimated that identity theft has become the fastest-growing financial crime in America and perhaps the fastest-growing crime of any kind in our society.

What is Identity Theft? The following are some ways that identity thieves work:

  • They call your credit card issuer and, pretending to be you, change the mailing address on your credit card account. Then, your imposter runs up charges on your account. Because your bills are being sent to the new address, you may not immediately realize there's a problem.
    They establish cellular phone service in your name.
    They open a bank account in your name and write bad checks on that account.
How to minimize ID theft If your wallet or purse is stolen you should:
  • File a report with the police immediately. Get a copy in case your bank, credit card company or insurance company needs proof of the crime.
    Cancel each credit and charge card. Get new cards with new account numbers. l Call the fraud departments of the major credit reporting agencies: Equifax (800) 525-6285; Experian (888) 397-3742; TransUnion (800) 680-7289; Ask them to put a "fraud alert" on your account and add a "victim's statement" to your file requesting that creditors contact you before opening new accounts in your name.

Credit Card Fraud Practically anyone can impersonate you using fake id (identity theft) and obtain fraudulent credit cards. With your Social Security number, drivers license, and a fake credit card, anyone can receive additional valid credit cards or debit cards in your name. With these identifying numbers anyone can quickly damage your credit. Your efforts to correct these problems can literally be exhausting! You may be victim and not even know it. Someone right now may be busy buying expensive items with credit cards they obtained in your name, by using your Social Security number and other pieces of personal identification. How easy is it to get false ID and obtain fraudulent credit cards? A lot easier than you might think. Hundreds of databases already exist that contain detailed information about your personal life, your buying habits and other lifestyle characteristics. This information is not always secretly hidden away or hard to find. Credit and charge card fraud costs cardholders and issuers hundreds of millions of dollars each year. While theft is the most obvious form of fraud, it can occur in other ways. For example, someone may use your card number without your knowledge.

    IDENTITY THEFT / IDENTITY FRAUD Identity theft is now the fastest growing crime in America. Some 500,000 to 750,000 people have their identity data stolen every year. Everyone and anyone can become a victim of identity theft. That's why this is such a devastating crime. So much of our personal identifying data is "out there" that it is virtually impossible to stop another person from taking your identity. Identity theft occurs when someone takes, steals or improperly obtains another person's identifying information: name/date of birth/Social Security Number. Using this information illegally, called identity fraud, allows an imposter to open or misuse bank accounts, purchase goods and services, apply for loans, obtain utilities, cell phones and cable TV. The extent of the identity fraud is limited only by the imposter's lack of imagination. You can protect yourself from identity fraud. Don't carry your birth certificate or Social Security card in your wallet or purse. Never give out personal identity data to others over the phone or Internet unless you are certain of the identity of the person you are dealing with. Do not give out personal information over cordless phones or cell phones; anyone can listen in. Obtain copies of your own credit reports once a year from the three reporting agencies and examine them carefully. Watch the flow of your mail. Check monthly bills and statements carefully. Lastly be prudent in where and how you give out your identity information.

Neighbourhood Watch MCPA : Resources : Fraud Fraud occurs when a victim is tricked or otherwise induced into willingly parting with their property by an approach that involved deception. WHAT IS FRAUD? Common forms of fraud include mail and telemarketing schemes, door to door solicitation, personal fraud or identity theft. Many frauds simply involve theft of your information and therefore may result in tremendous losses to damage to your credit rating without your even knowing it. Everyone must take precautions to protect themselves against fraud, particularly if you're in a frequently targeted group such as persons over 60 or if you've ever been victimized before. Congratulations, you've just won an exciting prize! Does this sound too good to be true? Then it probably is. This is just one common approach used by con artists to induce you to buy their products, pay exorbitant shipping and handling fees or otherwise bait their hook. Fraudulent mail and telemarketers will try to convince you to send cash or pay using a credit card for products that will never arrive or are different from what you expected. Mail and Telemarketing Fraud Can Inlude:

    Identity Theft and Your Identification Click here for identity theft and scam related news stories. Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. Credit card numbers, driver’s license numbers, social security numbers, and other personal identification can net criminals thousands of dollars in a very short period of time.
    While the financial loss incurred by this type of crime is not always incurred by the consumer, it can significantly traumatize them, and take them months if not years to restore their credit and good name, and may keep them from being able to cash checks, obtain loans, or even rent an apartment or obtain utilities.
    You can minimize the risk of being victimized by taking the following steps:
    1. Never leave your purse or wallet unattended, at work, at restaurants, at health fitness clubs, in your shopping cart, at church, at parties. Never leave your purse or wallet in open view in your car, even when locked.
    2. Destroy all checks immediately when you close a checking account. Destroy or keep in a secure place, any courtesy checks that your bank or credit card company may mail you.
