A Chicago Tribune Magazine investigation looks at the identity theft, "the nation's fastest growing white-collar crime." The story focuses on the case of Elizabeth Knowles, "a talented woman with an exciting musical career and a handsome fiance," whose "financial identity was stolen and used to run up more that $100,000 in fraudulent debt..." Knowles' case is pointed out as exemplary of the "official indifference" so far, since government agencies have begun to intensify their anti-fraud efforts only recently. The article reveals that "credit-reporting agencies admit they cannot guarantee accurate records."
