Fighting back after dark web identity theft

Whether you live in New York City or Sturgeon Bay hackers can take your information from the internet or from computers at stores where you've shopped.  From there it can be sold on the so-called "dark web".  Credit monitoring services, however, may not be the answer for which victims of identity theft are looking.  While they can help fix problems caused by hackers, the stolen information cannot be removed.  Nathan Drager, co-owner of Quantum PC in Sturgeon Bay, says while credit monitoring can be a valuable tool there are simpler steps people can take to protect themselves.

 

 

Drager says your information can be sold for as little as $2 along with stolen ID's from hundreds of thousands of other people.  That makes hacked ID's a big business on the "dark web".
