Scammers constantly evolve their tactics to make more money, con more people and get away with more of your hard-earned cash.

One of the newest schemes is synthetic identity theft, where a scammer takes multiple pieces of information from different people to create a fake identity. This allows scammers to stay undetected for much longer – you could be a victim without knowing.
