Identity Theft: The Cybercrime of the Millennium
Your most valuable possession is not your house, your car, your collection of antique jewelry. Your most valuable possession is what makes you -- your identity. What would happen if someone stole it?
Each year, more than 500,000 Americans fall victim to identity theft, and that number is rising. A stolen identity can mean the loss of your job, your credit rating, your friends, and in extreme cases, can result in a prison sentence for a crime you did not commit.
