This story, which was reported months in advance of the Federal Trade Commission's first comprehensive survey on identity theft, found that some 33 million Americans had been victimized since 1990, about 10 times as many as previously estimated. The results are very close to FTC findings. The story also details the source of thefts, the ways in which thieves steal those data, how vulnerable everyone is, and what individuals can do to protect themselves.
