Identity Theft in Oklahoma

Oklahoma MapMore than 2,500 Oklahomans reported being victims of identity theft in a recent year, placing the state 23rd highest in the nation. Criminals use stolen identities to make purchases in brick-and-mortar stores and online; to get employment despite previous criminal convictions, using someone else's good name and clean record; to obtain medical care, often for expensive surgeries and cosmetic procedures; and to file false tax returns, walking away with taxpayers' much-needed refunds. In these and many other ways, identity theft deeply impacts its victims, as the time and money required to restore a stolen identity can be significant.

For that reason, many people in Oklahoma are choosing to invest in Identity Theft Protection services, which keep a close watch over customers' personal information (e.g. names, birth dates, addresses, and social security numbers) and make sure than any attempts to use their identity fraudulently does not go unnoticed. These companies also help customers to quickly and easily take all of the necessary steps to repair any damage to their credit ratings if a breach should occur.

However, it is up to every Oklahoman to be responsible for securing their personal information. Many scammers hope to gain access to accounts that have passwords that are easily guessed from information that people inadvertently share on social media sites, like names of family members or important dates. Other criminals make phone calls posing as representatives of the IRS or a trusted business and claim to need the information of the person taking the call in order to fix a supposed problem with his or her account.

It is important to remember that most businesses, banks, credit card companies, and even state and federal agencies will rarely ask for such information over the phone. If Oklahoma residents want to find out if there is actually an issue with their accounts, they should contact the business or agency directly using customer service numbers provided on account statements or on the websites of the businesses themselves.
