The Patriot Act and Identity Theft

Posted on: October 5, 2016

Though I see a need for the legislation, I am not the biggest fan of The Patriot Act.

What is very interesting to me is that identity theft spiked after authorization of The Patriot Act. You would think the opposite would have happened but that’s not the case.

I am not so sure there is anything nefarious happening at the governmental level. What could be happening is that in the transfer of all your personal information as it is compiled for the legislation the information is being skimmed somehow while in transit from perhaps the credit card company to the agency compiling your information.

In other words, is it possible that the legislation designed to make our country more secure is in fact making the individual inside the country more vulnerable to identity theft at the same time?
