Well the prices for identities has dropped. It seems that the recession has hit the black market as the rings using the information is not willing to pay what they paid ten years ago. Another thing they are noticing is something I mentioned a while back on 1.0, the thieves are "aging" identities before they sell them. The full story is available in this MSN article.

However as always the emphasis is on financial fraud/identity theft and ignores the rest of the problem. The public is still in the dark about the scope of this problem and articles like this one stressing the theft of financial data is not helping anyone to become more aware. Just remember you are more than your bank account. The thieves know that even if the media doesn't!
