About the Book

WTF? Where’s the Fraud?--How to Unmask and Stop Identity Fraud’s Drain on Our Government reveals the true epidemic facing our nation, the profiles of its perpetrators, and the devastating cost of this multi-billion dollar industry. Larry Benson and Andy Bucholz marshal their experiences at LexisNexis Risk Solutions as researchers and developers of solutions for identity theft and fraud.

WTF? Where’s the Fraud? explains identity fraud and answers the questions, “Why should I care?” and “How much does it cost us?” It reveals the information gold mine that perpetrators already know about and take advantage of. It sheds light on the growing insecurity of the government’s benefits administration, and points to the emerging problems of fraud in health care. This book gives both government and citizen alike a leg-up against an unwieldy and adaptive enemy.

In a time when social media pervades popular culture, and ubiquitous devices provide easy access to personal information, identity fraud has emerged as a national epidemic.
