Identity Theft is on the Rise

The media is constantly warning us that identity theft is on the rise, that it can happen to anyone, and that it’s necessary for us to take serious precautions to protect our identity and our credit information.

Victims and survivors of domestic abuse need to be even more cautious about protecting their personal information because often, when an abuser feels that they has lost control of their victim, they will try to make life even more difficult for her by destroying her credit and depleting her financial sources.

It’s not unusual for an abuser to illegally use their victim’s credit cards, checking accounts, savings accounts, and social security number, in order to force her into debt and ruin her ability to get further credit in her name.

How an Abuser will try to sabotage his victim financially:

  • Fraudulently opening checking accounts in her name.
  • Take victim’s personal checks and purchase items without her permission.
  • Bouncing checks – ruining her credit.
  • Max out her credit cards – ruining her credit.
  • Fraudulently using her or her children’s social security numbers – this can be used for a number of things including stalking, theft, harassing or threatening.
  • Open fraudulent new credit cards in victim’s/survivor’s name – ruining her credit.
  • Open fraudulent credit cards in children’s names – ruining their credit.
  • Max out new credit cards – ruining her credit and/or her children’s credit.
