Being #1 is usually a good thing—unless you're talking about being the state with the highest per capita rate of identity theft reports in the nation.
And, as technology improves, criminals are getting smarter, figuring out new ways to steal your personal information. The true danger of identity theft is more than a stolen credit card number—it's the damage to your reputation and your credit history. If you fall victim to identity theft without any protection, it could take years to restore your good name.
