Money Is Not The Only Value Identity Theft Victims Lose



The personal data of over 100 million americans were stolen this year in cyber-attacks.The source of the Identity Theft was stolen data from  banks,retailers,hospitals and other institutions.

According to Terrell McSweeny, a member of the Federal Trade Commission the emotional impact can be "life-altering,"She went on to say It's essential "to remember that there is a human face on each of these ID crimes.

Problems associated with Identity Theft go well beyond canceling a stolen card or changing a PIN. Criminals file false tax forms or falsify identities to get utility service, open Bank accounts and obtain Drivers Licenses. Some victims have had their names wrongly invoked in auto accident reports and court records of other people's crimes. Victims say the violation brings with it anger, shame and even suicidal thoughts.

While theft of credit card information remains the most common type of cyber fraud it only accounts for about 16% of Identity Theft in the United States.The good news is it is the easiest type to detect and also the easiest to Correct. medical identity theft is growing.

It can result in victims being held accountable for medical treatment and drugs they didn't receive.Just imagine the danger of finding another person's health information in their medical records. They can be treated for problems not associated with them and have life threatening diseases ignored.They can be denied employment due unfavorable and incorrect information related to recreational drug use.

There hasn't been an some effort involving doctors and hospitals to combat medical ID theft the same way the financial services industry has done.There is still no protection,only Restoration..

Criminal Identity Theft Augusta, Ga

Criminal Identity Theft starts when an Identity thief gives another person’s personal
information such as name, driver’s license, date of birth, or Social
Security number to a law Police officer during an arrest or during an
investigation.The imposter may present a phony drivers license or other
forms of ID containing another person’s data.

The thief is cited for a traffic violation or for a misdemeanor violation and is released from arrest.The thief signs the citation and promises to appear in court.When the thief does not show up for court,the magistrate may issue a bench warrant, but the warrant for arrest will be under the victim's name.Everyday hundreds are wrongly arrested.Law enforcement has to trust their data base because everyone say's that "I didn't do it".

The burden of clearing one’s name within the criminal justice system is primarily on the victim.
If  Identity theft restoration is not successful, there are many consequences to the victim.

Identity theft can have devastating consequences for you, as the victim, who may face long hours of closing bank and credit accounts, opening new ones, and repairing your now public credit record.Identity Theft  Restoration may take time to clear your good name often more than 600 hours. During that down time, you may be denied jobs, loans, education, housing, and cars.You may even be arrested for crimes you didn’t commit. Unfortunately for victims of identity theft that is the experience of thousands. For some it will take years, to navigate the frustrating identity-recovery process.

The Federal Trade Commission reports that as many as 9 million American have had their identities stolen each year.That has created a market that has not been touched yet.
