Identity Theft Investigations To Prevent Frauds


Identity Theft Investigations To Prevent Frauds.

If you are a victim of identity theft, ISOG private investigators and private detectives can investigate your case and help you clean up your credit reputation.

The number of frauds perpetrated by using a false identity has been increasing. This crime occurs when personal information, such as name and date of birth, is used to prepare a fake ID card, a fake passport, a fake credit card in order to obtain credit lines from banks, make purchases by use of a credit card or sell properties.

According to the FBI, “A stolen identity is a powerful cloak of anonymity for criminals and terrorists and a danger to national security and private citizens alike. For the FBI, identity theft is nothing new—we’ve been dealing with criminals faking IDs for decades, from check forgers to fugitives on the run. But the threat is more pervasive and the scams more sophisticated than ever, including online elements. The FBI uses both its criminal and cyber resources—along with its intelligence capabilities—to identify and stop crime groups in their early stages and to root out the many types of perpetrators, which span the Bureau’s investigative priorities.”

There are different reasons why criminals steal the identity of another person.

A well-known type of identity theft is the financial identity theft which implies gaining economic benefits by using someone else’s identity, for example to use someone else’s credit cards.  Victims of identity theft might find themselves denied the opening of a bank account or refused a credit to make a purchase. Very often it takes years to solve the problems made by such criminals.

Identity cloning is usually committed by people who want use the identity of another person in order to enter and live in a foreign country. For example, in Italy there is a huge immigration of Chinese people who “never die”. They use the identity and documents of dead people to come to the country and stay.
