not really. however Privacy Rights Clearinghouse reports that
100,000,000 personal records have ended up in criminal hands since
2005. See:

 That does not mean 100 million people have become victims of identity
theft. And there is no reason to believe that these records have ended
someone's hand who plans to abuse them.

But with US population of 295,734,134 (CIA numbers) there is good
chance that one of friend is a potential identity theft victim.
