Identity theft lawyers near me: Asbury Park, NJ

It’s common knowledge that consumers’ Social Security numbers are the juiciest morsels of information that identity thieves hunt. An ill-gotten Social Security number alone can wreak an incredible amount of damage — thieves can rake in hundreds of thousands of dollars or more from bank accounts, investment accounts, and other financial targets.

What many people aren’t aware of is the fact that identity theft is an equal-opportunity destroyer — both adults and children regularly fall victim to this incredibly invasive attack. Identity thieves use children’s numbers to 1) file false tax returns; 2) illegitimately claim children for tax credit purposes; and 3) build fraudulent credit files, applying for credit and taking out loans.

Whether it’s an adult or child’s financial future in danger, millions of Americans experience this outrage every year. Overall, 33% of U.S. adults have experienced identity theft, more than 25% of whom are 55 years and older. Interestingly, that’s more than twice the worldwide average.

Identity thieves know the tricks of the trade

How many ways can an identity thief steal your money and ruin your credit? More than you might think. Cybercriminals are diversifying their targets to stealthily commit theft and fraud. Here are just a few ways they can victimize New Jersey consumers:
Government identity theft: Thieves use your Social Security number, passport, or driver’s license to apply for government benefits locally or nationally for unemployment, disability, food stamps, etc.

  • Scam identity theft: You receive an email, call, text, or social media request regarding goods, services, or promises you believe are legitimate but aren’t, and you end up providing your personal information. Call our legal team now.
  • Financial identity theft: Someone takes over your bank account or sets up a new account in your name without your permission. Time is of the essence; we’re here to take your call.
  • Data breach identity theft: You receive notification that your personal information was exposed in a data breach or other security incident. Our identity theft lawyers are here to help.
  • Medical identity theft: Your medical provider or insurance company notifies you that someone other than you was using your medical services. This could involve a variety of health care services including getting prescriptions filled. This type of theft could prevent you from 1) being authorized for critical medications; 2) submitting claims; 3) receiving medical care, and more. It’s time to take legal action — give us a call!
  • Criminal identity theft: You receive a court summons or a visit from law enforcement with a warrant for your arrest, even though you did nothing wrong. Thieves can provide authorities with stolen personal information during investigations or traffic violations; if the imposter doesn’t appear in court as ordered, an arrest warrant could ensue for the innocent person who belongs to the stolen information.
  • Mortgage identity theft: Your home’s title is suddenly in someone’s name, and that name isn’t yours. A criminal steals your identity via phishing scams or stolen tax returns or bank records and forges your deed or title documents in an attempt to sell your home or borrow against it.

Let’s stop thieves in their tracks

Don’t get caught unprepared for identity theft. In ancient warfare practices, infantry would surround themselves with battle shields to provide protection against the enemy. You can do the same, figuratively speaking. The last thing you need is to leave your Social Security number, credit card numbers/offers, driver’s license number, medical insurance information, reward account numbers, and other information vulnerable to the modern day enemy who is waiting to steal your finances and your sanity.
