Identity theft is not solely a financial crime
Strong emotions such as fear, anger, helplessness and frustration may also overwhelm a victim. Many victims have no idea how to resolve their situation, and whom to turn to for guidance. Promptly and properly notifying credit and law enforcement agencies as well as other relevant institutions can be a daunting and exhausting task for anyone trying to resolve the crisis on their own.
Identity Theft, one of the fastest growing types of financial fraud, can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, or income. Without the need to steal a wallet or billfold, a criminal can take over an identity with as little as a Social Security number. It can have a devastating effect on its victims, and create an overwhelming and time-consuming experience. But if it should ever happen to you, BankFirst & Identity Theft 911 know exactly what is needed to help you solve the problem and gain your peace of mind.
