Tweakers Excell at Identity Theft

"Identity theft and methamphetamine use go hand in hand, according to a Colorado Bureau of Investigation agent who specializes in tracking down those who steal people’s names and personal data.

"John Zamora recently told the Parachute/Grand Valley Kiwanis Club that meth users are good at committing identity theft 'because they’ve got all this energy, at least at first. Fortunately, the more they use meth, they start making mistakes.'

"Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America because 'there’s big money to be made and you can make it fast,' Zamora said."
