If you want to have your identity stolen, come to Texas.
The Better Business Bureau, citing recent data from the Federal Trade Commission’s Consumer Sentinel Network (CSN), says Texas has the fifth-highest rate for reported identity theft complaints in the nation.
The CSN compiled nationwide complaint data from the Better Business Bureau as well as from the FTC, the Internet Crime Complaint Center and other consumer advocacy organizations.
The CSN rankings for states and cities are based on the number of complaints received per 100,000 consumers in 2010.
According to CSN, Texas had more than 96 identity theft complaints per 100,000 of its people in 2010, or a total of more than 24,000 complaints.
Florida took top honors with nearly 115 identity theft complaints per 100,000 of its people last year.
