Identity Theft Cover

Don`t fall victim to Identity Theft

Identity theft and fraud are the fastest growing crimes globally. Together they cost Australians personally and business $2.5 billion and $5 billion dollars respectively each year and this is tipped to rise.

Identity theft happens in a multitude of ways.

Personal information is shared almost everyday as you pay bills, log on to a computer, or engage with any number of transactions with other people and organisations. Identity Theft can range from somebody using your credit card details illegally to make purchases over the internet or telephone, through to having your entire identity assumed by another person to open and operate fictitious bank accounts , take out loans, and conduct other business illegally in your name. The sort of documents offenders steal are credit cards, driver’s licenses, utility bills, bank and credit card statements, and any other documents containing personal information.
