dc.description.abstract The FBI states that identity theft has been the fastest growing crime for more than five years and many experts believe this will continue to increase. There are countless ways an individual's personal information can be compromised, which creates a much higher likelihood of becoming a victim. Most experts agree one of the best ways to reduce the chances of victimization is to become educated about the risks and take precautionary measures. This study employed a simple survey mailed to a random sampling of middle Tennessee residents to assess their knowledge of identity theft. The purpose was to gauge respondent's knowledge of identity theft, associated risk factors and preventive measures. en_US M.S. en_US
