BBB Bureau Briefs: Summer identity theft scams

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - The Better Business Bureau is warning Texomans of the dangers of identity theft.

Common forms of this type of theft include financial or banking, social security, medical, child, insurance, criminal, driver's license, employment, synthetic, and tax identity thefts.

Synthetic is a new concept that doesn't involve a singular identity but instead involves mixing parts of different people's information.

Methods thieves use to get your information include dumpster diving, mail theft, stolen wallet, change of address, shoulder surfing, social media, online shopping sites, skimming, phishing, and social engineering.
