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.
