Synthetic identities are built through identity theft for use in fraud requiring individually valid identifying details. Identity criminals establish new identities through the combined use of false and actual data, or at times, independently valid information. Criminals utilize this synthetic identity to gain open deposit accounts, credits, driver’s licenses, and even passports.
