Identity Theft is one of the leading white collar crimes in America...and, requires--on average--30 hours of hard work by the victims to regain their identity.

Consider these facts from a recent Javelin Strategy & Research Center report:

  • *Identity theft is on the rise, affecting almost 10 million victims in 2008 (a 22% increase from 2007)
  • *Victims are spending less money out of pocket to correct the damage from ID theft. The mean cost per victim is $500, and most victims pay nothing due to zero-liability fraud protection programs offered by their financial institutions.
  • *71% of fraud happens within a week of stealing a victim’s personal data.
  • *Low-tech methods for stealing personal information are still the most popular for identity thieves. Stolen wallets and physical documents accounted for 43% of all identity theft, while online methods accounted for only 11%.
  • This week's Second Half Christians show will look at identity theft and how you can prevent falling victim to this crime. You are invited to join the discussion by calling in to talk about your own experiences of identity theft.

    All of this leads us to ask and additional question: Have Christians in America lost their distinctive identity? Find out more on this informative show.
