Another common type of identity theft scam involves a bogus charity. You will be contacted by a person posing as a representative of a charity. They will encourage you to make a contribution, using either your credit card or you bank account.
Oftentimes, these scammers, these thieves make very compelling presentations. You open up and provide the person on the phone person and financial information -- you open the door to becoming a victim of identity theft -- by responding to the plea for a charitable contribution.
