Identity theft affects as many as ten million Americans annually as their identities are stolen and thieves subsequently drain their accounts, damage their credit, and endanger their sensitive information such as medical records. In many cases, by the time the theft has been discovered, it’s too late to fully repair the damages. The cost to businesses – left with unpaid bills racked up by scam artists – can be staggering.
