About This Book

Bob Sullivan, author and identity theft expert, probes this exploding crime. ID theft has hit ordinary citizens and celebrities alike, from Oprah Winfrey to Steven Spielberg, and costs the economy $50 billion a year. "Your Evil Twin" covers the topic from every angle, from mastermind identity thieves who have pilfered money from members of the Forbes 400 to Russian hackers who have extorted money from U.S. banks. The book offers a scathing indictment of the credit granting industry, from credit card issuers to credit reporting agencies, and examines lackluster responses and solutions put forward by the industry and government.

Bob Sullivan is a senior technology writer for MSNBC.com who covers many compelling consumer news stories. He has written more than 100 articles on ID theft since 1996. He is a regular contributor to MSNBC, CNBC, NBC Nightly News, the Today show and local NBC affiliates. With his colleague Mike Brunker, Sullivan received the prestigious 2002 Society of Professional Journalists Public Service Award for ongoing coverage of Internet fraud.
