Every two seconds. That's how often someone in the U.S. has their identity stolen.
Like our friend who had her purse stolen in a restaurant. The next day massive charges were mounting up on her credit card - in Argentina! These days she could lose her credit card without ever leaving the house. Online.
But there's a more devastating identity theft than the financial kind. It's when you feel like your worth as a person has been ripped from you.
I had just finished speaking at a conference when a lady came up and began to pour out the trauma of her life. Her conclusion:
"They've totally stolen my identity!"
Her best friend has turned against her. Her husband is divorcing her. Her children have totally rejected her. Wife. Mother. Friend. What's left?
