The numbers

Year      Dollar Loss
2009      $559.7 million
2008      $265 million
2007      $239.09 million
2006      $198.44 million
2005      $183.12 million

With numbers like this, we have to admit that scams and fraud are a growing problem, and that we need to address them NOW so that these numbers do not continue to grow at the rate that they are.
