Statistic of the Day?

More than half of all Koreans have become victims of identity theft since September 2011, when laws were tightened to prevent the practice.

According to a report submitted to Saenuri Party lawmaker Kim Young-joo by the Ministry of Security and Public Administration, 29.26 million people reported being victims of identity theft every year since 2011. Supposing there were not too many repeat reports, that boils down to 57.4 percent of Korea’s total population of 50.9 million.
