Identity theft is not just something you read about in the paper – everyone has a chance of becoming a victim. The monetary and emotional cost of repairing one’s identity can be extensive, often affecting one’s performance in the workplace and requiring years to recover.
According to www.identitytheftfacts.com , victims of identity theft lose an average of $2,000 to $15,000 in wages, spend between $850 and $1400 on expenses related to their cases, and spend up to a year trying to repair the financial damage caused by identity thieves. Some consumers victimized by identity theft may lose out on job opportunities, or be denied loans for education, housing or automobiles because of negative information on their credit reports. In rare cases, they may even arrested for crimes they did not commit.
In residential communities thieves acquire personal information by stealing mail or digging through recycling bins and trash. Throwing away anything intact that contains a name, address, phone number, birth date or financial-record numbers puts a person at risk of identity theft.
