Companies Provide Safe - Identity Theft Solutions
As many Americans know, identity theft continues to be a rampant issue in society. According to Wealth Daily, some two million complaints
of fraud was reported to the Federal Trade Commission in 2013, with identity theft ranking as one of the most common cases reported to authorities. Of the nearly 300,000 identity theft cases nationwide, some 20% targeted younger adults in the 20-29 age group. This is likely due to the age group's inexperience with fraud and its lack of awareness of just how vulnerable it is. Companies such as LifeLock (NYSE: LOCK), Intersections Inc. (NASDAQ: INTX), Equifax Inc. (NYSE: EFX) and The Travelers Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRV) have been working to provide consumers with solutions to combat identity theft.
On Wednesday, LOCK finished the day up 1.80% on over 673,000 shares traded. INTX closed up 1.65% on a little more than 87,000 shares traded, and EFX also had a positive day, finishing up 2.06% on a volume of over 593,000. TRV closed Wednesday up as well, up 1.04% on over 1.8 million shares traded.
