Identity theft continues to affect victims of all ages and income levels, while the path to resolution remains unclear. The ITRC Aftermath victim impact survey focuses on capturing the emotional effects of identity theft and behavioral changes experienced after victimization. 

Join FTC Commissioner Terrell McSweeny and an esteemed group of panelists as we discuss the key findings of this victim impact survey and the ways in which we can leverage this information to better serve victims and consumers.

Can’t make it to the event but want to be involved? Join in at 9:30am ET Oct. 29 on Twitter and follow along with the hashtag #IDTheftImpact. We’ll be sharing statistics and facts from the findings, and the experts’ thoughts on how to move forward.

It’s important that law enforcement, financial institutions, credit bureaus, and even government and advocacy groups, realize that behind each of the statistics there is a person dealing with the emotional impact of the crime, and the changes in their behavior that victimization brings.
