“The 2017 Identity Fraud Study, released by Javelin Strategy & Research, found that $16 billion was stolen from 15.4 million U.S. consumers in 2016, compared with $15.3 billion and 13.1 million victims a year earlier. In the past six years, identity thieves also have stolen over $107 billion,” according to the Insurance Information Institute, a nonprofit tasked with the job of improving the public understanding of insurance and how it works.

The study goes on to explain that, “Following the introduction of microchip equipped credit cards in 2015 in the United States, which make the cards difficult to counterfeit, criminals focused on new account fraud. New account fraud occurs when a thief opens a credit card or other financial account using a victim’s name and other stolen personal information.”

Those numbers…$16 billion with over 15 million American victim’s stolen from due to identity theft are staggering! The Institute’s Report also broke down the types of identity theft:

Look at the graph below, a 2015 study of how victims’ information is misused by ID thieves.

Government documents or benefits fraud 49.2%
Credit card fraud 15.8
Phone or utilities fraud 9.9
Bank fraud (2) 5.9
Attempted identity theft 3.7
Loan fraud 3.5
Employment-related fraud 3.3
Other identity theft 19.2

California, Texas, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, Georgia and Maryland are all among states that rank in the top 10 for incidences of identity theft nationwide.
