"The thieves know the data lies in these companies' databases, and they're
going to continue to try to exploit it," Foley said. "The fact that out of
the 145,000 files stolen from ChoicePoint, that there's only been 750 cases
of ID theft reported so far, may be misleading. A lot of people still
haven't been informed that their information was compromised, or they don't
know that criminals are actively using their information to commit crimes
even as we speak." 
"...the pool of consumer data shared among criminals grows with each data
loss. He said that unless data brokers are soon held to a higher standard,
identity theft is likely to continue to grow at their expense."
