If you throw details of your identity in the bin, you could be “recycled” – meaning, someone can turn those details from rubbish to valuable information to create another “you”.
Don’t throw anything away that can be useful for criminal minds – bills, letters, credit card statements etc – because they amount to “you” – so you are in effect throwing yourself and your identity away.
Good news is, you can EASILY prevent it happening to you.
Report identity theft or any misuse of your identity information without delay to the local police.
Report lost or stolen documents to the organisation that issued them.
