Am I At Risk?

Identity theft can take many forms but no matter the type of fraud, the goal often remains the same—to profit financially by using your personal information. In a single moment, someone could have access to your banking information, credit card accounts, even your medical benefits, and put the things that are important to you at risk.

EVERYDAY ACTIVITIES CAN PUT YOU AT RISK FOR IDENTITY THEFT:

1 Carrying your SIN card in your wallet or purse.

2 Throwing out sensitive documents.

3 Online shopping.

4 Using public Wi-Fi.

Risk Factors

Identity theft can happen to anyone and while there is nothing you can do to guarantee your security, knowing what signs to look for can be helpful in detecting identity misuse.

  • Unfamiliar criminal records‚ court records‚ address information or bankruptcies attributed to you.
  • Unexplained charges or withdrawals in your accounts.
  • Receiving bills or other mail late‚ or not at all. This may signal that an identity thief has submitted a change of address to divert your mail.
  • Being served court papers or arrest warrants for actions you did not commit.
  • Receiving credit cards for which you did not apply.
  • Being denied credit for no apparent reason.
  • Receiving calls or letters from debt collectors or businesses about merchandise or services you did not buy.
