Identity Theft (R&R)?


 Identity Theft (R&R)?

Identity theft is when someone uses your personal information to take control of your finances, credit card statements, or other important documents. 

Identity theft can be very dangerous for most people and is the #1 consumer complaint filed with the Federal Trade Commission each year.

This infographic from Experian reveals how 16 million Americans had their identities stolen in 2012.

In the U.S., there are more than 16 million identity theft victims every year, which averages out to 40 Americans every minute.

The most common way for identity theft to occur is through credit card fraud, and more than $16 billion in losses is reported each year. 
The second leading cause is tax refund fraud, where thieves steal a person's identity and file fraudulent tax returns using the victim's information. 
Another major source of identity theft is unsecured medical information, which costs $11 billion on a yearly basis. 
A small number of identity theft victims are re-victimized by crooks who steal their original information and use it to commit other crimes. 
The last source of identity theft is employee fraud, where tricksters pretending to be employees steal the victim's data for the purpose of defrauding companies. 

Research has shown that victims of identity theft experience high levels of emotional distress, with some even experiencing a heightened sense of danger in public places.
