Considering there are over 7 billion people in the world, it’s pretty amazing that no 2 people have been found to have the same fingerprint. Even between identical twins! This just goes to show that our identities are completely and utterly unique.

Unfortunately, however, and even though we are unique, cybercriminals have found several ways to steal our information and commit identity theft. This is a major crime and can have serious, long-lasting effects on its victims. Consequences include financial, emotional, and physical stress.
