How do they get my information?

Identity thieves may pretend to be the government, your bank, your employer, someone that you owe money to, or even an old friend. They can try to trick you with phone calls, emails, or fake websites.

Identity thieves can steal information from your wallet, purse, home, or car. They might even take bills and bank statements out of your mailbox or your garbage and recycling bins.
