Identity theft is one of the most pervasive crimes of the 21st century – affecting millions of Americans each year.
In fact, in 2016 fraudsters were able to make off with $16 billion from more than 15 million victims in the US alone, according to a study by New Javelin Strategy and Research. Criminals obtained and misused the victim's account or personal information.
Most of us have heard of identity thieves skimming debit card readers and using pin-capturing devices at ATMs to gain access to bank accounts, but the extent to their craftiness goes far beyond that.
One of the easiest things we can do to keep our private info is to block it out before we toss those papers in the trash. These identity theft prevention stamps are a great solution since they use ink and it masks out the text with randomly positioned symbols and letters that will cover all of our confidential data. Also, check out some cyber-security software while you're here for added protection.
