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.
