My Thesis statement
Even though most personal information is protected, identity is an easy crime to commit because personal information is easily accessible.


I plan to support my thesis with compelling arguments and counter arguments by looking for opposing viewpoints and finding evidence to refute them and I will examine the bold acts of Identity Theft from all sides. I am going to address any bias or fallacies that I may come across. I am going to find the strongest possible evidence to support my claims. I will take detailed notes during my research and give credit where it is due. My research will be credible and trustworthy. I will gather information from different types of sources and make sure the information is current. I will allow significant time for gathering my information and keep in mind that eighty percent of my paper should be my own thoughts and ideas. I will also remember that no more than twenty percent should consist of quotations.


Possible compelling arguments include: -- How easy it is to find personal information online -- People are willing to provide personal information online, on the phone, and in person without knowing who is asking for the information.
Possible compelling counterarguments include: -- Many companies provide protection for their customers and would lose business if every customer became a victim of identity theft -- Some people choose not to provide their personal information because they want to protect themselves from identify theft.
