dc.description.abstract ITRC firmly believes that only a collaborative effort that includes identity theft victims, subject matter experts, business, law enforcement and government will provide us with the tools needed to battle identity thieves. Unless we adopt a policy of "it is us" against the criminals, the criminals will continue to win. While providing a forum for victims to express their experience, ITRC’s hope is that Identity Theft: The Aftermath, will help in this collaborative effort. Victim of identity theft provide a unique insight into the crime that may not apparent to other parties. The survey respondents help to explain the gaps they encountered in victim’s rights, interactions with various entities, and identity and clarify the needs of victims of identity theft crimes. These are things we can address as a nation and as a collaboration fighting against identity theft. Through this report, readers will become aware of how lives can be interrupted, torn apart, and the emotional and financial impact of being a victim of identity theft, both short term and long term. This study reflects only the experiences of confirmed identity theft victims who worked with the ITRC in 2008. It is not a national census study of all victims of identity theft. Responses were given at the time victims responded to the survey and may not fully represent the entire experience of the individual. Thus, certain measures of victimization represent conservative estimates since the assessment was limited to the ending date of the study. (Identity Theft Resource Center Text) en_US
