How Do Social Insurance Numbers Get Stolen?
Identity theft and fraud is a booming black market business.
The most common ways SINs are stolen:
Thieves have been known to go through people’s trash to look for bills and other discarded papers with personal information on it
Exploiting weakness in a computer system either easily through unsecured Wi-Fi networks (think coffee shops) or more elaborate breaches into semi-secured websites
Pretending to be financial institutions (your bank, PayPal, etc.) or popular regularly-used companies in order to get you to reveal your personal information
Getting personal information under false pretenses and then selling it to other people or the dark web
Creating false websites that look like commonly used websites in order to obtain login and other personal information
Stealing wallets, purses, personnel records, or bribing employees who have access to mail, which includes bank and credit card statements, pre-approved credit offers, new checks, or tax information
