Ten telltale signs that someone has stolen your identity

How would you feel if someone else pretended to be you online? That’s essentially what identity theft is, and it can happen to any of us.

You have something very important that makes you who you are – your digital identity. It’s like a puzzle made of pieces of your personal information, financial transactions and online interactions.
