Identity Theft Identity Theft:  Identity theft occurs when someone uses your presonal, non-public information to commit fraud or other crimes. is a national problem that affects people of all ages. Every 79 seconds someone becomes a victim of identity theft. Perhaps this victim is having thousands of dollars stripped from their bank accounts, new accounts opened in their name, their credit history compromised -- or is even being arrested for a crime they did not commit.
