If A Criminal Could Become Someone Else Would They?

Nearly Half Of American adults

Thats how many US Citizens, Equifax lost the personal information of. Equifax lost Names, addresses, birth dates, driver’s license numbers, and Social Security numbers, for 143 Million US citizens. If you haven’t been effected directly, then you know someone who has been.

What are the consequences?


Its Never Going To Happen To Me

Lets look at man who’s information was stolen and used against him, lets call him Henry. The company Henry worked for had experienced a data breach or had been hacked. The company informed Henry that all of his information they had, had been stolen in the breach, he of course thought nothing of it thinking “they’ll never be able to buy anything with my credit score.”

2 years later Henry was pulled over for his tail light being out. At the end of the stop the officer informed Henry that he had a warrant out for his arrest for a hit and run committed in Florida. Supposedly Henry had been involved in a hit and run that ended with a man loosing his life. The only problem was Henry hadn’t been to Florida since his navy days 20 years ago.

This started a year long process for him to clear his name. He hired lawyers and private investigators to get to the bottom of how a car he had never seen was in his name, and even more important prove that Henry was not the man behind the wheel during that hit and run. He had to travel to Florida for court hearings, stay In hotels, and miss weeks of work, the financial pressure was almost too much for him.

At the end of the year the lawyers had managed to gather the evidence they needed to prove Henry’s innocence. The car had been purchased with cash and registered in Henry’s name using his stolen private information. Henry’s information was purchased online by a local Florida man, who then used Henry’s identity to cover up crimes he was committing. Leaving Henry on the hook for the legal system.

Imagine the difficulty of that one year process. Imagine having to deal the lawyers, courts, investigators, travel, shame, and the other difficulties of proving your innocence. This is unfortunately a reality many of us might face in the near future if we don’t take the right precautions. Remember Equifax was hacked for all of the credit information for 43% of the united states population, thats almost a 50/50 shot of being in the same position as Henry.


What can your personal Info be used for?

01

Use your medical records, This gives the person who bought your information the ability to use your medical history and credit to buy medical services they may or may not need. Leaving you the bill AND the hassle of removing the incident from your medical history.


02

Buy property (with no loan), This allows the person who bought the home to commit illegal activities in the home under the guise of using your name.Illegal activities could include money laundering, drug and human trafficking, or any other illegal activities an individual wouldn’t want to be associated with.

03

Sign up for services, such as internet services to commit illegal activities in your name. Cyber criminals know to take a layered approach when covering their tracks. Why wouldn’t one sign up for internet services under someone else’s name to add one more layer to the onion they are protecting themselves with?
