Identity theft has become so prevalent that it affected one-in-four U.S. consumers in 2021, along with virtually every type of financial product, commercial platform, and government support. Simultaneously, scam activity — via social media, phone, text, and email—targeted one-in-three U.S. consumers in 2021. What were the results of these activities? And how will organizations deal with and overcome the fraud challenge?
