Identity theft and security

November 24, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Remember the movie Catch Me If You Can?  It is the story of Frank W. Abegnale and how he was able to create and live in a series of false identities until finally caught.  Since then, it looks like he has made a boatload of money consulting for the government and in the private sector.  Here is a link to an executive summary of his book, Stealing Your Life which says you will learn.

• Who is at risk for identity theft.
• Why you should avoid offers that appeal to greed or fear in exchange for
personal data.
• How to monitor your credit report regularly and know if anyone’s been
“knocking on your door.”
• How to identify the people stealing identities.
• Why you should read privacy statements carefully and choose to opt out of
sharing information whenever possible.
