You may not know your identity has been taken until a debt collector contacts you. Having your identity stolen can cast a broad shadow across your life. It can destroy your credit score, preventing you from approval for loans, getting an apartment, or even credit cards.
Debt related to identity theft starts with your sensitive information ending up in the wrong hands. This person may use something such as your Social Security number to go to the hospital or take out a payday loan. All of this could happen years before you find out, leaving you with the bill and steep interest on top of it.
If your credit has been destroyed by identity theft, you need to speak with an attorney at the Kansas City credit law firm of Stecklein & Rapp. Ignoring your debts that don’t belong to you can still cost you unless you take action to correct it.
