Statistics show that one in 30 Americans is affected by identity theft every year. The question may no longer be if you or someone in your family will become a victim of identity theft – but when.
If you become a victim of identity theft, recovering your identity can be time consuming and costly. The average person will spend 49 hours attempting to restore their identity.
