Identity theft is America’s fastest growing crime and it can affect anyone. Thieves may attempt to steal credit card numbers, bank account numbers, and social security numbers in order to assume their victim’s identity and open new accounts or make fraudulent charges on existing accounts.
If your identity has been stolen, it may become difficult to qualify for credit, open accounts, and obtain employment. In addition, it can be very time consuming and costly to restore your identity. For these reasons, Valley Bank & Trust wants to keep you informed with up-to-date information on how to prevent and repair identity theft.
