The latest thing that is really hurting people each and every day is Identity Theft. I know first hand how bad this is. Although it wasn't a personal theft of my identity I had to deal with it for a friend. Her son's identity was stolen the year he died. Now I can hear you say, what difference did that make - he was already dead. It effected EVERYTHING including his final tax return.
