Although overall fraud rates are down, the need for offering protection still greatly exists.
In the past year, the total number of identity fraud victims and dollar amount of fraud has declined1. This is excellent news, as consumers are being more careful, and the variety of products offered by Financial Institutions, third parties, and independently are gaining adoption. While identity fraud overall has become less frequent in America, the results of the crime have graver repercussions for consumers than they have in past years. Victims of identity fraud, on average, spend more than $630 to restore their good name. This is up from around $390 last year. And, this still translates to identity theft occurring every 4 seconds and 3.5 percent of Americans over 18 years of age becoming victims.
