Which states are the worst for identity theft?
The Denver Post has a story by Tynin Fries ranking states as to losses due to identity theft per capita.
Nevada was the worst, but Colorado was second. The other states are big urban states: California, Maryland, and New York. Colorado’s loss per victim seems to be about $4400.
It still is hard to believe these losses are unrecoverable.
This recent study was from SecureLife. But a 2017 study had ranked Michigan as #1.
A good question would be to relate identity theft to election fraud. We’ll come back to that later.
