One

in Seven Have Had Personal Information Stolen

A new IBM survey finds that roughly 14% of Americans

have had personal information or credit card information stolen,

and nearly 20% of these consumers say it will make them less

likely to do holiday shopping online.

Sixty-one

percent say they are concerned for the safety of their information

during the holiday shopping season. About two-thirds said they

are more concerned about credit card fraud and identity theft

than they were a year ago.

The

survey included interviews with 1000 respondents age 18 or older.
