Stolen Identity Worth $1,285 on Black Market: PrivacyAffairs Study
If you’re wondering why people go to such trouble to grab your data, this study from PrivacyAffairs found a complete set suitable for identity theft would be worth $1,285 on the dark Web. Don’t be too flattered: most of the value comes from $550 for a U.S. driver’s license and $550 for a European national ID card. Unless you have both, your personal details are probably worth less than $1,285, Dear Reader. Sorry.
