Identity Theft is On the Rise Across the United States

Few Americans are aware of just how often identities are being stolen throughout the United States. Estimates suggest that these crimes occur every couple of seconds – which means that millions of Americans have their identities stolen in any given year. At International Security Services, Inc. (ISS), we understand the impact that those thefts can have on victims in this country. As the premiere identity theft investigations firm in New York City, we are committed to helping you identify identity thieves, recover your identity and reputation, and learn how to protect your information and avoid being a victim of this all-too-common crime.

Common Ways Criminals Steal Your Identity

There are many different types of theft when it comes to identity. Criminals may sometimes use others’ identities when they are charged with crimes. Some illegal immigrants, debtors, and others use identity cloning, adopting your identity for their own purposes. Patients can assume your identity when seeking medical care, particularly if they gain access to your insurance details. Most commonly, thieves can commit theft using your financial identity – stealing bank account or credit card information – or steal a minor’s identity but using his or her social security number.

Preventing Thieves from Stealing Your Identity

Identity thieves are more sophisticated than ever before and have many strategies for obtaining the information they need to steal your identity. It is vital to recognize areas of vulnerability so that you can protect yourself from these criminals. For example:

  • Zealously protect your social security number. Consider it confidential and provide it only when necessary.
  • Avoid providing personal or financial information to unknown, unverified parties.
  • Never use personal details for your online passwords. That includes spouse and children’s names, birthdates, pet names, and so on.
  • Shred all financial documents before disposing of them.
  • Monitor your credit card and bank statements regularly and note unexpected charges.
  • Never provide personal or financial information over the phone, through texts, or email, unless you are certain of the recipient’s identity.
  • Keep all critical personal and financial documents in a secure environment.

The best way to prevent your identity from being stolen is to develop identity protection habits that safeguard your vital information. Unfortunately, no system is 100% foolproof, but you can minimize risk and deter most criminals from stealing your identity by making it more difficult for them to access your personal details.

Frequently Asked Questions

Contact International Security Services, Inc. today to learn more about our general investigations, business investigations, overseas investigations, and background check services.

Who uses private investigation services?

Many people and companies have questions that only an investigation can answer. For example, you may wonder whether a spouse is being unfaithful, desire to learn more about your adoption, or want to run a background check prior to marriage. Businesses often need help investigating potential fraud, screening employees, or conducting due diligence before mergers, acquisitions, or overseas expansions. International Security Services, Inc. can help with those and other investigation needs.

Why can’t I just investigate on my own?

Obviously, you could try to investigate just about anything on your own. However, there’s a reason why people and companies choose private investigators to get the answers they need. Proper investigations take time, resources, and skill sets that most laypeople lack. In addition, many people are unfamiliar with legal issues related to surveillance and other investigative concerns and can thus easily run afoul of the law during any do-it-yourself investigation.

Why should I choose ISS?

ISS investigators have the expertise and experience you need to get the answers you deserve. Our investigators are all licensed professionals with skills sets that include intelligence gathering and counterintelligence measures, and they’re backed by state-of-the-art investigative tools and techniques.

Can you help me with overseas investigations?

We can. At ISS, we are fluent in both English and Russian, and familiar with the Russian community. As a result, we can provide quality investigative services in both the U.S. and the nations that were once part of the Soviet Union.

What should I know about my investigators?

You should only consider investigators who are properly licensed, bonded, and insured, and who have a proven track record of success. ISS investigators meet and surpass those expectations, which is why our team can offer the most effective investigation services in New York City and abroad.

Should I be concerned about discretion?

When you hire ISS investigators, discretion is a priority. We conduct covert investigations to ensure that subjects remain unaware that they are being surveilled or otherwise investigated. New York statutes require that investigators only release your information if you request it or a court orders such information to be divulged. Otherwise, information that we share with one another is considered confidential. That includes information that you provide during any consultation, even if you decide not to hire ISS.

Are there limitations and things you can’t investigate or do?

Of course. For example, private investigators are not allowed to surreptitiously obtain credit report information without written consent or record conversations without at least one party’s knowledge. We do not harass targets, violate local, state, or federal law, or otherwise conduct ourselves in any way that might be considered immoral or unethical. We can, however, use every legal tool at our disposal to ensure that you get the answers you need.
