Cons, Frauds and Scams

 

Identity Theft

Identity Theft is still a growing problem. Arizona is listed as one of the hot spots for this crime. The most common ID theft complaint is that someone opened a credit card account in the victim's name. Thieves also use victim's information to obtain phone or utility service, money from bank accounts, loans, jobs and medical services.

Remember to check all bills and bank account statements carefully, and get your credit report once a year to make sure no unauthorized accounts have been opened in your name.
