Underground criminals are buying personal identities for as little as 50p, a report on internet security has found.
For less than the cost of a can of coke fraudsters can buy your credit card details, your name, address and date of birth, the report found.
Data collected from over 200 countries showed 349.6 billion spam messages were sent in 2008, a 192% increase on the previous year.
The highest amount of spam sent to Europe, Asia and the Middle East is said to come from Russia, while Poland appears to host the most phishing websites.
full identities go for between 50p and £40.
