Identity theft is one of the biggest crimes afflicting countries like the United States and Britain. According to a recent report, in 2016 alone, American citizens lost about USD 16 Billion due this misdemeanour. This figure increases to a staggering USD 106 Billion if we considered a ten year period up to 2016. In the United Kingdom, home to one of the financial capitals of the world, identity theft has doubled over an eight year period ending 2016.
