SEATTLE -- Think about the consequences of identity theft and you probably think about all the financial ramifications of this crime. These include replacing credit cards, closing banks accounts and changing passwords or PINs. But people who have their identity stolen often have a lot of other problems to deal with, including depression and a lack of trust. These feeling were documented in a new report by the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC).

On the KOMO Midday News (weekdays 1-3pm), Eva Velasquez, president and CEO of the ITRC, talked about the survey findings.

The full study, Identity Theft: The Aftermath 2017, is available online here. (Click the picture above to hear the audio).
