Business Identity Theft

Learn how to prevent or report business identity theft.

Identity theft does not just affect individuals. Business identity theft, or corporate or commercial identity theft, occurs when a business’s identity is used to transact business and establish lines of credit with banks or vendors. Like consumer identity theft, business identity theft can result in potentially ruinous consequences. Both the business and people associated with the business can be hurt by this crime.
