Nearly three-fourths of high net worth investors are worried about identity theft, ranking it higher than terrorism (65 percent) or a major illness (56 percent), according to a new Morgan Stanley Investor Pulse Poll. The pollÂ surveyed thoseÂ with more than $100,000 in investable assets between ages 25 and 75, and found that 72 percent worried about someone stealing their identity, and moreÂ than half believe identity theft will become a larger concernÂ within the next three years. Only 18 percent believe identity theft worriesÂ areÂ overblown. That may beÂ because many areÂ victims of cybercrimes:Â The poll found that 56 percent have had their computers infected with a virus and 40 percent have had their credit card numbers stolen.
