When you’re an honest person, it can be hard to understand the mind of a thief. Thieves get a thrill out of committing wrongful acts. But, what does a thief really gain by stealing? The risk of getting caught and going to prison? That kind of life is not for me. I think I’ll stick to working hard to earn the things I need.
What’s one of the worst things a thief could steal from you? Possibly, your identity. The information that verifies who you are.
How does identity theft affect victims? When a thief steals someone’s identity, their personal information is at risk of being exposed on the dark web from anywhere in the world. Victims are immediately susceptible to financial loss, harm to their credit score, even penalties from the IRS if the information is used for tax purposes.
