Thick as thieves: Secrets from convicted identity thieves
Millions of people are affected each year by identity theft. It’s big business for identity thieves and it’s getting worse. The Federal Trade Commission received nearly three million identity theft reports in 2021. The cost was nearly $6 billion to consumers.
