The correct answer to this question is B. When someone uses your private information, pretends to be you in order to obtain things, money, or services for his/herself. Identity Theft happens every day and affects us all. It doesn't matter if a person is rich or poor. Their information is still at risk for identity theft. Though it is common, there are steps that can be taken to protect from identity theft. One is to invest in protection.

There are services such as LifeLock, which will alert any suspicious activity and report it to the consumer the instant they see it. This early act could help in stopping the theft before it affects a personal bank account or credit. Another is to check bank accounts daily to watch for any suspicious activity.
