Is Identity Theft Finally Getting Some Attention?

Identity Theft is Finally Being Noticed by Authorities

It used to be that victims of identity theft would go into their local police departments, file a police report, and have that report shoved into a folder to get lost amid a mass of similar complaints that nothing was being done about. Nowadays, that’s no longer the case and incidents of identity theft are being followed up on and prosecuted like never before. But why did it take so long for the authorities to stand up and take notice?

It’s All About Money

As much as we would like to believe that the government really had our good interests in mind when it comes to instituting identity theft laws and prosecuting identity theft criminals, it has a lot more to do with it than our personal protection.

Identity theft has become a staggering problem, and that problem is causing major players like banks, credit card issuers and insurance companies some serious money and when big business starts losing millions, someone stands up and takes notice.

As a result, the government is really cracking down on cases of identity theft, giving consumers more resources and easier ways of filing claims and getting their identity theft issues resolved.
