An anonymous reader writes: Being negligent of your personal data can cost you quite a bit when you have to restore your identity. But what about the other end? What if you wanted to buy identities? How much does that cost? You can get credit cards in lots of ten for less than $3000. A driver's license for $650. Passports can be had for under $1000. Scary stuff and a good reminder to be careful what data you give out to whom.
