There has been a glaring lack of scholarly attention to the crime of identity theft, according to the editors. The nine chapters in this volume attempt to fill some of this gap by exploring theory and research on identity theft, as well as situational measures to prevent its occurrence. The editors introduction outlines several key issues related to the definition, extent, and commission of identity theft. The chapter by Graeme Newman applies the opportunity perspective to the study of identity theft. Megan McNally uses the script approach to examine the meaning and mechanics of identity theft in all of its forms. Henry Pontell Gregory Brown and Anastasia Tosouni present new findings on how identity theft affects victims, based on data collected by the Identity Theft Resource Center. Heith Copes and Lynne Vieraitis describe how a sample of identity theft offenders viewed their crimes. Michael Levi recounts the evolution of identity fraud and its control in the U.K. Russell Smith presents a framework for evaluating preventive measures, particularly document-based systems, biometric technologies and identity cards. Sara Berg considers how information technology can be used within a situational crime prevention framework to fight identity theft. Robert Willison examines the use of situational crime prevention to protect sensitive personal information in the context of information systems security.

Book Description Lynne Rienner Publishers Inc, United States, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Despite the massive growth in the amount of identity theft taking place and the attention it receives in the media there has been a surprising lack of academic work and research on the subject.This book aims to address this deficit, focusing on the opportunities for committing - and thereby preventing - identity theft.Drawing upon the work of a distinguished range of contributors, the book provides a range of perspectives on the topic of identity theft but with a common core of concerns - in particular questions of definition, measurement, the scarcity of data, the role of technology, and the importance of cooperation in combating the problem.Each chapter offers a glimpse into the world of identity theft. Taken as a whole the book is testament to the diversity of the topic and the commitment of its authors towards understanding identity theft and preventing its occurrence.
