From the Document: "The best way to deal with identity theft and the subsequent fraud is to take precautions to prevent it from occurring. Nevertheless, like other crimes, there should be remedies to repair the harm caused by identity-based crimes. In the case of identity-based crimes, however, these processes have not been fully established. Moreover, there has been relatively little investigation into the strategies to repair the harm caused by identity-based crimes. [...] This multiphase project was designed to understand the effect and quality of services provided to victims of serious identity crime in the United States, to improve our understanding about victim experiences, and to identify the best ways of supporting victims who experience the ramifications of identity-based crime."
