Social Media Identity Theft
Social media identity theft occurs when an individual steals your online identity. In the event your social media account is stolen or ‘hacked’, it may be used to steal money from family and friends, create new accounts or viciously smear your reputation.
Secure your personal information by using strong passwords and private settings to prevent becoming a victim of social media identity theft. There are fishing schemes used on social media to obtain personal information to use for personal gain.
