Identity theft costs consumers millions of dollars and thousands of hours each year in damages and time spent defending and protecting themselves. Awareness is increasing, but so is the criminal’s ability to be one step ahead. Although technology is getting better, many victims of ID theft still fall to the tried and true techniques of wallet theft and old-fashioned scams. And, just like the criminal’s techniques, the tried and true methods of diligent tracking and safeguarding personal information are still the best ways to protect yourself.
