Over the past year, policymakers are progressively concerned with the increasing number of identity theft cases which has threatened the nation’s financial stability, among others. Identity theft is often interrelated with various other criminal activities, ranging from credit card and bank fraud to immigration and employment fraud. Consequently, the effect felt is no longer a pure financial burden to individuals and businesses, but it is affecting the nation’s economic health and national security!
Now, with the advancement in technology, identity thieves have also advanced. They are capable of using other person’s identity to commit crimes easily.
