Identity theft occurs when someone fraudulently uses your personal identifying information to obtain credit, take out a loan, open accounts, get identification, or any other activity in which a criminal uses your information in a fraudulent way.
For many victims, identity theft is about more than the loss of money. It is about the loss of security, independence and self-worth. Our goal at the Colorado Attorney General's Office is to provide some helpful tips to help you avoid becoming a victim of identity theft, and to walk you through some important steps in case you do become a victim.
