What is identity theft?

Identity theft can occur in variety of ways, but it is in general the false assumption of another person’s identity for the purposes of obtaining illegal benefits. Pretending to be someone else when apprehended by the police, using another’s credentials for financial gain, and using another’s identity to gain access to medical benefits or drugs are all examples of how identity theft can be committed.
