Yet Another Study Says Identity Theft Is Exploding
from the boom dept
It really was just a month ago that a well hyped study came out suggesting that identity theft was nothing to worry about, as incidents were decreasing. Of course, that study was sponsored by some bank and credit card companies who had plenty to gain from pretending identity theft isn't a problem. In fact, it didn't take long at all for people to point out all the flaws in the report. So, it should come as no surprise that yet another report has now come out saying that identity theft is on the rise -- and that it was less likely than before that victims of identity theft could recover whatever was stolen from them. So, while the banks and credit card companies apparently want to pretend it's no problem, back out in the real world, it would be nice if they were doing a bit more to prevent identity theft.
