New Technology May Increase Identity Theft - Scientist


By Patricia Reaney | September 4, 2005
DUBLIN (Reuters) - New technology could increase rather than solve the
problem of identity theft and fraud, a British criminologist warned on
Monday.
Identity cards and chip and pin technology for credit cards will force
fraudsters to be more creative and are unlikely to alleviate the
problem.
Dr Emily Finch, of the University of East Anglia in England, said
dependence on technology was leading to a breakdown in individual
vigilance, which experts believe is one of the best ways to prevent
fraud and identity theft.
