Quotes

"That window is shrinking dramatically," he says. "So the criminals typically have one billing cycle to have a shopping spree."
"If you have no credit file whatsoever, the best way, we think, to get a credit card is to become an authorized user on a family member's account" says Linda Sherry, director of national priorities at Consumer Action
Plus, he says, the infrastructure "protecting" our most valuable information is extremely vulnerable. "Everything's broken: consumer security, law enforcement, banking, the IRS, the Social Security Administration. It's easy for crooks to exploit security gaps because there are so many of them."
"Given the critical role that credit scores play in consumers' lives, we welcome steps by industry to adjust how it weighs medical debt in order to be as precise as possible in predicting the creditworthiness of a consumer" said Moira Vahey, a spokeswoman for the CFPB
