Authors

Abstract

Identity theft—appropriating someone else’s identity for illicit gain—is the fastest-growing financial crime. It can cause considerable financial losses, and cleaning up a trashed credit history can be time consuming and frustrating. This Economic Commentary examines the identity theft phenomenon—how it works, how lawmakers, regulators, and financial institutions are combating it, and what consumers can do to protect themselves.
