Identity Theft Cases Decrease
WMTW Portland News has posted a story indicating that identity theft cases have decreased. See the news story posted on 30 Nov 07 entitled "Number of ID Theft Victims Decrease". While a short article it does state that the number of victims in 2003 were approximately 9.9 million and that number has decreased to 8.3 million in 2005. The study was conducted by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and is not considered to be very accurate. For more information on ID theft click on MSSR's web page on "Preventing Identity Theft".
