Item description for Identity Theft, Inc.: A Wild Ride with the World's #1 Identity Thief by Glenn Hastings & Richard Marcus...

Identity theft is the crime of this century. Just ask Frank Abagnale of Catch Me If You Can fame. He states so in the Q&A of the latest edition of that book. So here, then, is the true-crime book of this century. This is the first book on the subject from the inside, told by someone who's assumed hundreds of identities and become rich off it. Not only does the author reveal how ID theft is done, he tells loads of wildly unbelievable but true stories about his impersonations as they led to riches. Some of them are as funny and outrageous as they are amazing.

At the same time he tells people how to protect themselves from the gangs of ID thieves thriving in the real and virtual worlds of today, and as he explains in his foreword, Glenn Hastings is writing this book to repent for his crimes. While committing them, he failed to take into account the damage they caused his victims. He states that had he continued on his massive trail of ID and credit fraud, he could have conceivably made a billion dollars. But enough was enough; ultimately he had to do the right thing.

Reviews - What do customers think about Identity Theft, Inc.: A Wild Ride with the World's #1 Identity Thief?

idenity theft inc  Apr 19, 2008

For once a book that i wanted to read to the end.
The Real Deal  Oct 4, 2007
I have read many Identity Theft related books including Stealing Your Life: The Ultimate Identity Theft Prevention Plan by Frank W. Abagnale. Most ID Theft books are informative prevention based guides, some with additional insight from the authors actual experiences. However none comes close to Identity Theft Inc, as this book stands out in its description and detail of the real life charades and daring escapades of some low tech thieves who used a variety of original ideas and methods to help scam ultimately millions of dollars and goods by assuming and using the credit profiles of high networth individuals.

Unlike other ID Theft books this one is not only very interesting but highly entertaining and reads more like a high tech crime novel that is hard to put down. There will be endless debate as to the character and or motives of the author(s) but I believe the book achieves it's goal in part of atoning for his past whilst at the same time providing a huge wake up call for the general public, bank and credit industries, various authorities (police, state and federal agencies). I liked that it was written with such candor and from a true personal experience, warts and all rather than from some publishers desire to sanitize the story. I highly recommend this book to readers everywhere.
awesome book  Oct 11, 2006
Great book for anyone to read. I knew nothing about identity theft, and through their stories I feel like I learned a lot. It was entertaining, informative and I couldn't put it down. I am a big fan of Richard Marcus, and now I am adding Glenn Hastings to my list. They have a great way of writing and the story just fills up in your mind. Great book for anyone to read...
