In 2003, more than 10 million Americans were victimized by identity theft, costing individuals and business almost $50 billion in fraudulent transactions. Such statistics indicated that the provisions of the Identity Theft and Deterrence Act of 1998 were insufficient to deal with the problem. Accordingly, the 108th Congress attempted to further assist victims of identity theft by passing two new laws: the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACT Act) and the Identity Theft Penalty Enhancement Act. The complete 10-volume set, which consists of the 4-volume core set plus 6 supplemental volumes, contains 168 documents and is intended for use by in-depth research libraries. The core set contains 62 documents from the 108th Congress and would be of interest to law firms and general libraries.
This legislative history set will be added to HeinOnline's U.S. Federal Legislative History Library by the beginning of December.
