Complaints of identity theft and fraud in Canada double and even triple each year, according to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. Fraud artists often use electronic means to steal millions of dollars from ordinary Canadians. In some cases, the appropriation of an individual's identity may go unnoticed for years, and some victims lose everything.
