I just read this piece on identity theft. So it then came as a funny coincidence that my insurance policy came to me in the mail. Part of my policy gives me coverage for identity theft. A whopping $10,000.00 is what I am covered for. There is little doubt that identity theft is a real problem. Question is though, just how widespread is it? To my knowledge there is no one that I know who has been a victim of this. What about you guys? Anyone you know affected by this?
