Business Identity Theft:
Business identity theft is a newer development in the criminal enterprise of identity theft. Thieves are targeting businesses like yours for quick and easy profit, with devastating consequences. It is a serious risk and you need to know the facts before your business becomes the next victim.
What is Business Identity Theft?
Learn the latest statistics on business identity theft, what business identity theft is, how thieves strike a business, and how to better protect yourself and your business. Identity theft isn't a crime that strikes only consumers. Businesses, of all types and sizes, are squarely in the cross-hairs of identity theft and have become prime targets for identity thieves.
Business identity theft happens when criminals pose as owners, officers or employees of a business to illegally get cash, credit, and loans, leaving the victimized business with the debts. Identity thieves can steal a business' identity by gaining access to the business' bank accounts and credit cards or by stealing sensitive information such as the Tax Identification number (TIN), Employer Identification number (EIN) or the owners' Social Security number (SSN). Criminals then use the stolen information to establish lines of credit with banks or retailers to purchase commercial electronics, home improvement materials, gift cards, and other items that can be bought and exchanged for cash or sold with relative ease.
Perpetrators of business identity theft are often employees or former employees with direct access to financial documentation. Victims of business identity theft often do not find out about the crime until significant losses accumulate, or someone discovers discrepancies on the books. Because of the hidden nature of the transactions, businesses can potentially lose large amounts of money.How do Business Identity Theft Schemes Work?
How do thieves steal a business identity? Is your business at risk? Knowing the tricks and methods of business identity thieves can help you to reduce your business' risks of becoming their next victim.
What are Your Personal Risks as an Owner?
As a business owner or key executive, your personal information is closely tied to your business and is also at risk. When a business' identity is stolen, the owner's own personal identity is also often used in the crimes.
How Can You Protect Your Business?
Thieves regularly target unsuspecting businesses that don't protect themselves. Learn ways you can thwart the efforts of business identity thieves and protect yourself and your business from business ID theft directly from Jesse Navarro from Bonnie Dumanis, San Diego District Attorney. Jesse will discuss real world examples and types of business identity theft and security steps you can take. He'll discuss what you absolutely must know to protect your business.
