About Identity Theft
A study by Javelin Strategy and Research reported that identity theft affected 11 million people in the United States in 2009, an alarming 12% increase from 2008. Less than 12% of all identity theft can be detected by credit monitoring alone. However, credit monitoring only has the ability to alert victims to true name identity fraud, which occurs when real identity information is used, without modification. In true-name identity fraud, the fraudster actually poses as the victim.
Another type of identity fraud that is on the rise occurs when a thief creates a new identity by combining real and fake identifying information. This is known as synthetic identity fraud. Synthetic identity fraud accounts for the other 88% of identity theft. A typical synthetic identity fraud situation is when a criminal uses a Social Security Number in combination with a different name, or other variations of information.
