URL Link to website:



The web article of “The Hidden Costs of Identity Theft,” by Ellen Sirull, is one that talks in good detail about the negative impact that identity theft has on its victims. This include the negative effects on their emotional state, financial status, and personal or private information. The article also references the organization of ITRC (Identity Theft Resource Center), as it is one that has recently gotten itself involved with this issue of identity theft. This is an organization that helps the people (especially those who have been victims) though the collected data that it analyses, by identifying various important aspects of identity theft victims, such as by measuring the amount of cases, the types of theft, and the victims personal information or complaints.
