What are the positives of identity theft?

Identity Theft is the act of stealing personal information and using that information to steal money and possessions up to and including the victim's residence. It is a devastating experience for the victim who faces a long and arduous process dealing with bill collectors, credit agencies, banks, other financial institutions, and the IRS. Identity theft is a crime but few cases are brought to court. It is difficult to see any positives in being the victim of identity theft. Not until one's identity is restored and recovery well advanced is it possible to even consider that the changes that occur in the victim may be positive. Nevertheless, victims who recover from identity theft usually emerge stronger, more assertive and more organized.

What damage is done during identity theft?

Actually that's just some jerk wanting to go on a shopping spree at the expense of someone else Financial identity theft is the easiest to detect and the easiest to repair but it only makes up 28% of all identity theft.

People can use them for surgeries, cancer treatments, blood transfusions and this goes on your medical records. Not only are you stuck with thousands of dollars in medical bills, your medical records show that you had medical procedures done that never happened. This could turn out deadly. Victims can spend years and thousands of dollars trying to repair their damaged identity. Children have become a hot item for identity thieves. They are stealing their social security numbers and opening up lines of credit. Nobody ever knows it has happened until they grow up and try to open up their own line of credit or apply for student loans to find out their credit has been ruined.
