Identity Theft's Impact on Society Identity theft is definitely a huge issue especially in today’s society, identity theft happens when someone takes “personally identifying information” such as a social security number, driver’s license number, or other information and they use that information to commit fraud or other crimes. The information that is stolen may be used to obtain credit, services or even merchandise in the name of the victim. This is a huge problem especially since the internet has made it surprisingly effortless for identity thieves to use stolen information because all sorts of things can be purchased online with no personal interaction what so ever. Credit card files are a major target of web site hackers. “Your credit score suffers if an identity thief uses your information to apply for credit or steals your credit or debit card information to make purchases”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
