Online Business Identity Theft Training Course
Business identity theft is a term used to describe a variety of crimes involving the fraudulent or unauthorized use of a company's identity. Typically, a thief uses information about a company's identity to obtain credit from banks or retailers that he uses to purchase goods and services for himself, leaving the company responsible for the bill. Once the scheme is uncovered, a company must spend considerable time and money to repair the damage to its credit and reputation — and may also be on the hook for the cost of the goods and services purchased by the identity thief under the company's name.
