A new survey shows that 45% of all U.S. adults would feel at most risk for identity theft when making a purchase with a credit card that requires the card to be temporarily taken out of their sight, for example, at a restaurant. By contrast, consumers are least fearful of falling victim to identity theft when using their credit card to make a purchase in person, for instance at a store. Only 21% of U.S. adults listed this as a concern, suggesting that consumers are comfortable as long as they can keep an eye on their card. In an effort to provide consumers with identity theft education and protection, the NFCC announced its second annual “National Protect Your Identity Week,” October 17-24. Joining the NFCC as a full partner this year is the Council of Better Business Bureaus.
