Identity Theft is a serious problem that can take years and thousands of dollars to resolve. According to the US Justice Department 2004 Justice National Crime Victimization Survey, about 3.6 million households, or three percent of all households in the US, discovered that they were the victim of at least one type of identity theft during a six-month period in 2004.

Households headed by young people (18-24 years old), those in urban or suburban areas and those with incomes of $75,000 or more were the most likely to experience identity theft. Victimization did not differ by race or ethnicity. About two-thirds of the households said they lost money.The estimated loss during the 6-month period was about $3.2 billion.
