Definition Edit

New account creation is a type of identity theft that involves the fraudulent creation of new accounts, for example, when a criminal uses stolen data to open a bank or credit card account in someone else’s name. Often, in order to engage in this type of identity theft, the criminal must steal more personal information than merely credit and debit account information.
