third is the Identity Cloning where all of a victim's personal information is stolen and a new life line created by the thief. It mostly affects children since most parents do not check their kid's information until they are at least 18 years. The primary methods of this practice include Low- Tech and High-Tech (Compomizzi, D’Aurora & Rota, 2013). The former involves approaches such as breaking into an individual's house.

    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.
