Three men were arrested on Monday, April 18, at a TD Bank for an incident of alleged identity fraud. I wonder, is the food better in prison? It seems some people will do almost anything to get arrested nowadays.

First off, let me explain the minor difference between identity fraud and identity theft because a lot of people confuse the two, including myself. Identity theft is the act of stealing private, personal, or financial information, while identity fraud would be the act of using that information for nefarious reasons. As I said, a minor difference but an important one.
