The Criminal Image

What is the image that pops in your head of the type of person who would steal your identity?

According to the numerous resource publications I have perused as well as the many articles I have read on the subject of identity theft, if there is a stock photo of a criminal used, sure enough they are all a similar image of the same man with a black mask appearing to be lingering around the corner waiting to creep in and steal your personal data right from under your nose!

Go ahead, I’ll wait as you Google search identity theft (in images), and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Yep, so it’s that guy or Melissa McCarthy.

If we are on the lookout for the person fitting that one-dimension description, than I guess we are good.

And, I guess the “identity theft criminal image man” had a vacation day when my identity was stolen. The criminal in my case doesn’t look a thing like that.

No, the criminal who stole my identity was a female, late 30’s, blonde, and maskless.

So be on the look out for that description too.
