Finding your bank account emptied can be a nightmare!

True? Hmmm yes…. Online identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America and the UK, with over over 50,000 people become victims of identity theft every day. Imagine that!

85% of victims don’t even find out about the theft, until they’re denied credit, the average victim spends over 600 hours fixing the problem, it takes the average victim a staggering one and a half year to return to normality! To top it up one in ten adults will be victims of identity theft in the next five years and the amount of cash spent during an average identity theft crime is 100,000 US dollars.

And to top it up Internet users like me and you are a staggering 50x more likely to fall victime to identity theft than those that do not use the Internet.

What is the world comming to!
