The article focuses on Identity Theft Assistance Center (ITAC), a non-profit bank-backed cooperative evolved from an experimental outreach into a first-responder for 46 members and card issuers. Sponsored by the Financial Services Roundtable and BITS, it deals on checking out after the customers report fishy transactions, missing cards and mystery bill collectors. ITAC clears out pilferage and fraudulence by coordinating with agencies like Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation.
