“Frankenstein ID’s” refer to synthetic identities – a new type of fraud carried out by criminals that have created fictitious identities which are pieces of mismatched identities, some fake, some real, some even deceased.
Write a two-page paper describing the origin of this type of identity theft, how these criminals build these identities to commit fraud, and who are the likely targets of such fraud. Research and describe two cases of “Frankenstein” identity theft.
This paper should be at least three pages long, double spaced, with your name, date, and title included as a header, page numbering in the footer in the form of page x of y, and have references cited per APA formatting guidelines. You must use a minimum of five references and none of them can be Wikipedia.
