Identity theft is classified as two different types of fraud, true name fraud and account takeover fraud. In a true name fraud case, someone uses the personal information of another person to open new accounts and take out debt in the victim’s name. In account takeover fraud, the perpetrator uses personal information of the victim to gain access to their existing accounts for personal financial gain.
