Identity Theft in Utah

Utah MapAny $50 billion industry would be considered a successful business. Unfortunately, that's how much fraudulent activity occurs each year as a result of identity theft. In a typical year, more than 1,700 Utahans report being victims of this type of crime.

Identity theft prevention experts recommend that Utah residents take measures to protect themselves from having their identity stolen. First, don't carry any documents bearing your SSN - including the card itself - with you regularly. Second, give out your social security number only if absolutely necessary, not just because a service provider asks you to for it. Next, check your credit report each year to be sure that there aren't any open lines of credit that you do not recognize. Finally, don't give out any information over the phone unless you made the call or you are absolutely certain of the identity of the caller; a recently-reported scam involves callers acting as representatives of the IRS but who actually are trying to steal personal information from the person who answers the call.

There are numerous means by which Utah data thieves can get your sensitive information. They go through trash looking for bills and bank statements that you didn't shred before throwing out; they make use of "skimmers" or sneaky cashiers to get credit card numbers at the register; they can "phish" data from your email and steal it while pretending to be trusted businesses. It seems like new and "improved" ways to steal your personal information are reported every.

While nobody can promise that your personal information will never be taken in Utah, Identity Theft Protection services are available to make sure that identity thieves can't do any long-term damage to you, especially with respect to your credit rating. With 24-hour monitoring of your name, address, social security number, and other details, you can rest easier knowing that any attempts to use your identity fraudulently will be detected quickly and resolved appropriately.
