Who are you? Are you a wife, husband, father, mother, friend or companion? Are you a doctor, nurse, teacher, lawyer, clerk, bookkeeper, librarian, housekeeper, or sales person?
Do you identify yourself with what you do or your relationship with others?
|Identity theft steals the benefits of being you.|
We hear a lot about identity theft. Some of us may have experienced having credit cards or bank account information stolen by someone. A year ago, my husband and I went through this disaster as someone in another state was using our card numbers, but we had never been in that location at all. We had to go through the steps of clearing our cards and getting our money back.
These crimes are labeled as identity theft, but what the criminals are really doing is stealing the benefits of being another person.
