"The Crime of the Century" is so pervasive that 10 to 15 million consumers were victimized last year with an estimate that less than 40% of these cases were reported. The cost to business and the economy is estimated at $50 Billion.

It is also estimated that employees who become victims spend a significant amount of time, while on the job, cleaning up the mess created by these Identity Thieves. The FTC estimates that it takes as much as 600 hours of time to repair the damage done and the losses average from $40,000 to over $92,000.
