Identity theft is an ever evolving crime. As fraud protection experts learn the latest schemes that criminals are arranging, fraudsters simply modify their methods to make their crimes more difficult to detect. Identity thieves now combine information from multiple individuals to create a false identity. This technique is called synthetic identity theft. This fraud is so hard to detect, you could be an unassuming victim!
