Comprehensive Identity Restoration

Myth vs. Reality – Identity Theft

What you don’t know can hurt you

When it comes to protecting Personal Identifying Information
(PII) and reducing risk of identity theft, the more accurate
information you have, the better off you are.

Here the Investigators of Kroll’s Cyber Security & Information
Assurance practice share some common myths about identity
theft and the reality of each:

Myth: I use cash so I won’t become a victim of identity theft.

Reality
: There are two things to consider: First, just because
you have not established a credit account, that doesn’t mean
somebody else will not use your PII to obtain credit. Second,
identity theft affects far more than credit. Identity theft can
involve criminal acts, medical care, banking, employment and
more. It is important to monitor and protect your identifying
information as much as possible regardless of your favorite
payment method.

Myth: My credit report is monitored. I don’t have to worry
about identity theft.

Reality:
Credit report monitoring can help you discover potential
credit-related identity theft early. While it may then provide an
opportunity to take steps to prevent other cases of credit-related
identity theft, you must approach credit report monitoring as a
valuable tool of detection rather than prevention. As stated in the
previous myth/reality, a thief can use your PII to accomplish much
more than opening new credit accounts.

Myth: Sensitive data can be transmitted safely via e-mail.

Reality:
Unless you are encrypting your email message and
sending the encryption key separately, email is not a safe way
to share PII. Note that legitimate organizations will not ask you
to share sensitive information via email.

Myth: You must supply your Social Security number (SSN)
if asked for it.

Reality:
The Social Security Administration explains on their
website, that there are specific laws requiring a person to
provide his or her SSN for certain purposes. Entities that request
your SSN for legitimate purposes include, but are not limited to,

the following: government tax and welfare agencies, financial
institutions and securities brokerages, state moter vehicle
departments and employers upon your acceptance of their offer
of employment. Other entities may ask for it, because it is a
readily available identifier. Before sharing this piece of sensitive
data, ask why it is needed and if there is a different identifier
you can give instead of your SSN. Memorize your SSN and do
not carry your Social Security card with you routinely.

Myth: Paper records (or other physical documentation) with

PII are much safer than electronic records.

Reality: Stealing physical items is still a very common method of obtaining PII. Items stolen may include a laptop computer,
purse/wallet, files from an office, or even trash from a home or
business. Secure items holding PII to the best of your ability and
shred any papers containing PII before discarding.


Myth:
Contacting a credit bureau is the best way to get a
free credit report.

Reality: The Annual Credit Report Request Service was
established in response to the FACT Act which mandates that
consumers be given the opportunity to receive a free copy of
their credit report from each national credit reporting agency
one time every 12 months. You may request the free reports by
contacting the Annual Credit Report Request Service through
their website—www.annualcreditreport.com or by phone at
877-322-8228.


Myth:
It is safe to respond to an unsolicited phone call or

internet form as long as you recognize the name of the
company.


Reality:
Because of tricks such as domain masking and caller id
spoofing, it is not safe to give sensitive information by phone or
internet form unless you initiated the activity and are certain of
the legitimacy of the entity with which you are dealing. If you
receive a suspicious phone call or email, contact the entity that
appears to have sent the communication using a phone number
you obtain on your own and ask about the legitimacy of the
communication you received.
