That's a logical step.

The info they get that way is long-lived and they can just snarf it
up, store it away for much later use.

Crime orgs have been building databases of financial and ID info for
quite a long time now. The Russian mafia has been leading in this but
the Asian orgs are catching up quick.

It may become necessary to start using throwaway or one-time ID's and
accounts to keep ahead of them.
