According to a Javelin Strategy and Research survey on ID theft, there has been a 22 percent increase from 2007 to 2008.
The Javelin survey also estimates that 9.9 million Americans became victims of identity fraud last year, resulting in the loss of $48 billion. A growing number of these cases are the result of stolen junk mail. Pre-approved credit card offers, fliers and specially marked envelopes are not only a nuisance, they are an easy target for ID thieves.
