Don't let it happen to you, if you are unsure about how identity theft happens, and what you can do to protect yourself, read this article at The Tech Zone.
"Although you can recover from having your identity stolen, it is far better to prevent it from
happening in the first place. Knowing what criminals can do with your identity is the first best
step to protecting your identity. It doesn't do much good to try and protect your identity from
some unknown threat. A criminal that can assume your identity can open and access credit accounts,
bank and investment accounts, and generally pretend to be you in many ways. Most identity theft
actions result in costing you money, but not all. Identity thieves can use your medical background
as well to disclose personal information or just to get fraudulent medical services or drugs. The
list of what crooks can do with your identity is nearly endless. That's why you need to do all you
can to protect your identity."
