Identity Theft

Watch for any signs of unauthorized use of personal identifying information such as:

  • your name,
  • address,
  • phone number,
  • driver's license,
  • social security number,
  • place of employment, 
  • employee identification number,

  • credit card information.


Identity theft occurs when a person gains access to this information and uses it without your consent to commit fraud or theft.


Victims of identity theft should start by filing a report with the Stockton Police Department. 

After the report is filed, you will need to obtain a copy and keep it for your records.
