According to a new report, Nevada consumers fall victim to identity theft more often than most of the rest of the nation. In Nevada, the rate of identity theft complaints is 128 per 100,000 people, which is the fifth highest rate in the United States. The median loss for Nevada residents related to identity theft is $500 (2nd highest). The report also stated that the most common form of identity theft in Nevada is credit card fraud.
These figures demonstrate that Las Vegas residents must remain vigilant about checking their credit reports often to make sure they are not a victim of identity theft. If you believe you are a victim, there are federal laws that protect you and allow you to bring a claim at no cost to you.
