December is Identity Theft Prevention and Awareness Month.

Identity theft occurs when someone takes your personal information and uses it without your knowledge to commit fraud.

If you are a victim of identity theft, you may be denied loans for education, housing, or cars because your credit reports have been negatively impacted.

You may end up spending a lot of time and money repairing the mess thieves have made of your credit record.
