The Safest And Least Safe US Cities By Identity Theft 2017

As you could read in our previous posts, identity theft and fraud are prevalent in states with large population. One of the reasons for this is the fact that most populated states have more cities, which are business and financial centers. It is precisely due to this fact that they are more vulnerable to these crimes.

For this reason, Elite Personal Finance came with an idea to create two lists: safest and least safe cities in the identity theft category. The first one is a list where we all want to see our cities. But the second one is where you definitely don’t want to find the place where you live.

For Methodology and Ranking System, read this page. (LINK)

* For the sakes of more precise statistics, we analyzed metropolitan areas. All of them have at least 50,000 residents, while most of them have at least 100,000.
