Identity Theft - A Growing Problem
According to the F.B.I., identity theft is the fastest-growing white-collar crime in the United States. If your purse or wallet gets stolen, the cash inside may not be the only thing a thief wants to steal. If items like SS card, ATM and credit cards fall into the hands of a criminal, it may be used to steal your financial identity.
