My opinion

I think its really dumb to steal an identity. Why would you want to rob a bank and go to jail. I know Identity thieves want all the money but risking it to go to jail is a huge task that I would not do. In my life I will never steal any ones identity because I have my own. Overall I think its really dumb to steal someone's Identity.
