Quote:

More than one in three cases results from a lost or stolen wallet, checkbook, or credit card. In roughly 10 percent of cases, the thief is a friend, relative, co-worker, or acquaintance of the victim.

Paraphrase:

Anybody can steal your identity including the people you trust.

Identity Theft

Blyskal, Jeff. "Identity Theft has been Exaggerated." Identity Theft 2012: n. pag. Opposing Viewpoints in Context.

Quote:

The impact of identity theft has been regularly overstated. Most cases are incidents of stolen credit cards-occurrences that are easily rectified without much risk for consumers. And even though cases of true identity theft can be traumatic, they rarely affect people's finances. Most of the products being sold to combat identity theft are expensive and unnecessary.

Paraphrase:

If they steal your identity, it isn't a big deal. Sure it can be scary but it can be solved.

Quote:

When your credit card is stolen, you simply report it and get a replacement, and the card issuer takes all or most of the financial loss, not you.

Paraphrase:

You can always solve your problems.

Quote:

Bryan Rutberg's identity was stolen on Facebook. Shortly after joining, his page was hacked, and a bogus message was posted stating that he had been robbed while traveling overseas and needed money to return home. He tried in vain to remove the phony plea for help, but the scammer had changed his password and "defriended" his wife, so he couldn't even view his own page. Concerned friends offered assistance, but he was unable to warn them.

Paraphrase:

This story explains how you have to be careful with what you post and how much information you give.
