I would suggest that is actually not the case -- while the
market for identity credentials (includes login IDs, credit
card numbers, CVV & Track 2 data, SSNs, etc.) may indeed be
illegitimate, it is thriving.
So as far as I'm concerned, the statement above on market value
is completely meaningless.
