With just a few account numbers and some personal details, a thief is equipped to assume someone’s identity. With the long downturn in the economy, you can expect to see a continued rise in identity theft cases. While identity theft is often looked at as an individual's problem, it can also affect your credit union’s bottom line and good name.
According to the 2009 Identity Fraud Survey by Javelin Strategy and Research:
● 9.9 million Americans were victims in 2008 – an average of 22,000 victims every single day – a victim every 2.5 seconds
● $48 billion was lost by businesses
