D. Neither A or B.

A

Answer: A. Your credit report displays accounts you did not open.

Obtaining the financial or personal information of a person and using the identity of the person to engage in fraudulent activities like unauthorized transactions is identity theft. The most common form of identity theft today is using the credit card of an individual to make transactions without the person’s consent. To do this, fraudsters search the hard drives of discarded or stolen computers and then hack into the network. With this, they can get certain details of the individual whose computer is now in their possession.
