Can 2 or more people make someone a victim of identity theft?

Lets say 2 or more people stole someone’s SSN. Can they each apply for multiple credit cards and loans, or will the bad credit ruin someone elses chances of applying for those credit cards. Just using that as an example.
I know more than one person can steal money from your bank, but can 2 or more people keep applying for credit cards in your name and cause double the damage?
