We are hosting a Twitter party about the increased threat of identity theft during summer travel. Here are some of the statistics we would like captured in a funky, web 2.0-looking, infographic.
-There were 11.6 million victims of identity fraud in 2011. (Javelin)
-According to the FTC, Florida, Georgia, California, and Texas are among the top five states for Identity theft complaints. These states are also among the most popular states for summer vacations. (FTC)
-In Miami, four Romanians were charged with fraud and identity theft after they made and placed skimming devices on ATMs throughout four Florida counties. (FBI)
-Up to 12,000 laptops are lost or go missing in US airports each week, 70 percent of those returned to lost and found are never reclaimed, which can lead to identity theft. (Gartner)
-A study by SpiderLabs, a part of the data-security consulting company Trustwave, found 38 percent of 2009 credit card hacking charges involved the hotel industry. (Trustwave)
We aren't too specific about size. Whatever looks good.... but we would want it to look good displayed on a blog post and in a mobile device. Our blog is at http://resources.identityguard.com
Attached are the tips and questions we will be using in the party as well as some stats. You can pull from any of this to put the infographic together.
