Understanding Your Score:
- 100 + points – Recent surveys indicate that 7-10 million people were victims of ID theft last year. You are at high risk. We recommend you purchase a paper shredder, become more security-aware in document handling, and start to question why people need your personal data.
- 50-100 points – Your odds of being victimized are about average. Higher if you have good credit.
- 0-50 points – Congratulations. You have a high “IQ.” Keep up the good work and don’t let your guard down now.
