On a recent document filed by Hope, she noted that the rapper’s debtors are disappointed with federal actions after DMX failed to appear at a meeting with his creditors last September.

Common ways identity thieves obtain information

Posted on Tuesday, September 24th, 2013 at 7:28 pm    

There are, unfortunately, many outlets for identity thieves to gain credit card information, telephone numbers, or even social security numbers from victims.

According to the United States Department of Justice, one of the most common is through the internet. Often, these people will send out emails promising benefit if they receive your banking information. Scams like these may give thieves information they need to make fraudulent bank account withdrawals.

Another tactic used by those looking to steal identity is the “shoulder surfing” method. This is when someone looks over a victim’s shoulder as they are withdrawing money from the ATM, or listening in as the victim gives their information to their bank over the phone.

If you or a loved one have suffered losses from identity theft, the Russell Van Beustring P.C. may be able to stop the damage and help you recover from this financial issue. Please call 713-973-6650 to speak with a qualified attorney today.
