Identity Theft Coverage
Last year, there were more than 17,000 reported cases of identity fraud in Canada alone. That amounts to nearly 50 affected individuals every day. With that, identity theft is one of the fastest growing criminal acts which tends to take a heavy personal and financial toll on victims.
People who have been confronted first-hand with a case of identity theft fraud have had to spend their own hard-earned money and a considerable amount of time and effort to clear their own credit history, let alone the countless hours reestablishing accurate financial records.
Identity theft comes in many forms but is often related to having one’s personal information stolen or compromised. This could come in the form of a stolen social insurance number, driver’s license or even an online password for a bank or credit card. The common denominator is that the theft occurs with the intent to utilize the stolen information for illegal purposes such as making fraudulent purchases, accessing banking funds, obtaining government identification or even applying for credit.
