Secure Data and Document Destruction: Types of Personal Information that Identity Thieves Steal

Identity thieves have adopted several different methods of stealing personal information. Some of the more common ways of obtaining information include sifting through garbage or breaking into mailboxes in search of bank statements and other identifiable material. Old hard drives that get donated or resold, for example, may still contain easily accessible information, even if they have been wiped clean.

What Identity Thieves Look For

In today’s technologically advanced climate, identity theft takes various, more inconspicuous forms. The kind of personal information identity thieves look for includes, but is not limited to:

  • Home addresses
  • Bank statements
  • Social security numbers
  • Driver’s license numbers
