Getting Out From Under ID Theft Isn't Easy
from the piling-on dept
One of the biggest problems with identity theft isn’t necessarily what it does immediately to its victims, but the mess it leaves for them. The way things are structured now, the entire process of picking up the pieces is placed on the victims, which is quite a pain. Not only that, but it’s very difficult for identity theft victims to convince everyone necessary to fix the situation — which is why over a quarter of victims say they’ve been unable to clear their name after a year of trying. No wonder some are saying that we need to shift the burden before companies take identity theft seriously.
