Cam Griff uses personal experience with identify theft as inspiration to pen first novel

A 2017 study on identity fraud found that $16 billion was stolen from 15.4 million U.S. consumers in 2016, marking it as one of the fastest growing crimes in America. While dealing with the aftermaths of identity theft can become the source of confusion and frustration, learning proactive steps to preventing this cybercrime does not have to be. Cam Griff shares her insights for protecting yourself against data theft with her novel “Card Games: When Identity Thieves Stack the Deck, It’s Time to Change Your Game.”

“Card Games” follows the story of Joe—a rising officer in a California bank—who returns from an overseas vacation to find that fraudulent purchases were made with his credit card. Joe sets out on a quest with international crime prevention groups and his credit card company to track down the thieves and protect himself against future cybercrimes. Along the way, Joe and those who surround him, are pulled into a larger cyber plot that threatens them all.

“I experienced two incidences of credit card and data theft about six years ago, when this problem was in its infancy,” Griff said. “This threat has since evolved, yet many people still do not realize the depth with which cybercrimes can affect their lives or what they can do to help prevent it. Card Games is written as a mystery/thriller fiction based on mind-bogging fact.”

“Card Games” is a result of Griff’s desire to pass along an engaging story that combines real life risk with possible resolution and potential prevention. For more information on the book and author, please visit
