Am I a Victim of Identity Theft
The only real way to know if you are a victim of any kind of identity theft is to monitor your financial accounts and credit reports yourself. Look for any unexpected withdrawals or indications that someone was using your banking funds without your knowledge. Also if you receive any mail that might indicated that accounts have been opened, bills not paid, or anything that seems fishy.
