Identity Theft is the fastest growing crime in the United States.  Identity theft is defined as the unlawful use or possession of Personal Identifiable Information (PII), financial identifying information or the financial device of another.  PII may include your name, address, driver license number, Social Security number, date of birth or financial information such as your bank account or credit card information.

According to the Federal Trade Commission, Colorado ranks 13th in the nation for identity theft complaints and 12th in the nation for overall fraud complaints.  The Motor Vehicle Investigations Unit (MVIU) investigates fraud that includes the unlawful use of Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) records, documents and/or personally identifiable information of another and the unlawful use or possession of counterfeit documents.  For more information on how you can protect your identity visit the Colorado Attorney General's page.
