1. This article is about identity theft statistics for college students and things that college students do and allow in their lives that could explain why these things happen. I chose this article because as a college student myself, I have had theft happen on my credit and debit card and it is not only a scary thing, but very prevalent nowadays with college students.
2. The data and statistics in the article was written and published on The Financially Fierce Blog, but the numbers came from The Identity Theft Resource Center when they surveyed 1,000 college students and 1,000 parents. the researched was conducted by a survey given by The Identity Theft Resource Center, and they asked questions such as “Are you concerned about identity theft,” “Do you leave your dorm room unlocked,” “Have you ever let a stranger into your apartment,” and many other questions.
3. A question I have about this article is, “How many universities in all did The Identity Theft Resource Center survey, or did they not ask what school they went to?” I also want to know, “Did The Identity Theft Resource Center go back and try the survey again and get any other results from years or even months later after their first survey?”
