The US Federal Trade Commission once again found identity theft leading the list of the Top 10 consumer complaints, accounting for 255,000 of the 686,000 complaints filed with the agency. That is the sixth year in a row that identity theft topped the list. The FTC also found an increase in child ID theft.
our comment: where could we find statistic like that for the European market? Some national privacy authorities publiched some yearly reports, but... in Europe how could you make a complaint as far as you don't know that the company you were giving your data does not tell you that there was some data theft?
