Identity Theft Monitoring Begins At Home

There are many items that can be done to monitor bank accounts and other personal information to avoid identity theft. Shredding all private information is the first line of defense in a extended line of identity theft overseeing practices.

Making sure robbers cannot steal private information from the trash puts people at ease. An additional way to practice identity theft checking is to ask why someone would need any social security card. When it is for identification functions, ask if there is a different type of identification that can be used. Many legitimate businesses never ask for a persons social security number.

Retain only one or two credit cards in the wallet. Dont write down PIN numbers or account details on the cards or keep the information within the wallet next to the credit cards. Always keep this information inside a safe place at home. If your card is lost or even stolen, report that right away. Dont wait to become victim of id theft. Instead, observe id theft monitoring practices cautiously to prevent yourself from being victimized.

Get yearly credit reports as well as report any dubious activity. Catching thievery early can help whenever rebuilding the damage done. Identity theft can happen quickly, but if people are conscious of the type of credit they have and they number of credit cards they’ve, identity theft monitoring will become much easier.

Knowing who has permission to access personal information is something everyone should be aware of. Report not receiving a bill as soon as it really is known. Someone could have stolen it and is also trying to access the particular account. Be careful to conceal personal information in a place that is safe and secure. In case of a break in, banking accounts and credit card information should be safe.

Identity theft can happen if a drivers license is stolen. Always keep this sort of information close and within reach. Do not set wallets in back pockets, as thieves may steal them. Rather, wear a carrier that can be kept close to the underarm. Monitoring individual belongings, bank claims, bills, and all company accounts can help to prevent id theft before it occurs.

    How can I secure my home desktop pc? I’m concerened about physical theft and then someone extracting the information from it.

    How can I fully secure it. I have windows XP, I’m using a signon password and have NTFS as the file system.

    I really need the pc to be iron clad resistant to theft.

    I work at Target and one time I rang up this guy that wanted me to charge him $2,000 for a few gift cards and put it on a credit card. Later on my team leader explained to me that he couldn’t go over a certain amount and that the credit card he used was possibly stolen. What would he accomplish doing that? Who else has had experience with stolen credit cards? Who has time to research all these ways to commit fraud? What other things can somebody do with a stolen credit card.

    My husband ordered a camera online from Abt store and next day he received a phone call from a person who said is an Abt store security officer and needs to verify certain information. This person told him our old address and just asked to verify the number of the street. then he told my husband another iolder address and asked for a house number. next , he asked for my husband’s D.O.B. , he asked for day and month, and he already knew the year. after verification, he seemed to be satisfied but then he asked for 2 middle numbers of his SS# and gave him the first 3 numbers….My husband did not give him this info but seemed that he knew it already…my husband told him that he should not give away his ss# over the phone with the rest of personal information, but the guy explained that this is to “protect” …from fraud and so on. We make good living and now are very worried that this may be the identity theft case. We’ve bought many items online but never had to give away all personal information even more no one ever had our info just like that…We think this needs to be reported , where should we start ? are our assets in in trouble?

    my credit card company called me yesterday and told me that there were 3 charges for about $2400 on my card to a 1800 flowers on mothers day. They have closed my account and told me they would send me new cards with a letter that i need to fill out. I am not that familiar with all this process, am I responsible for the $2400? & what should I do once I get the letter? And in the future what can I do to prevent such things of happening?

    To sum it up:

    someone from my cosmetology school installed a keylogger on a poorly protected company computer. they got my information (ssn, date of birth, address, etc) an also managed to log my keystrokes for my aol email acct. one day my cousin called, said someone was on my screenname and i tried logging in, and they changed my password. not only did they change my pass on my aim, and email, but my online banking and credit accts as well.

    well my husband is a bit ‘pc friendly’ and sent an email to the person hoping theyd send one back, and they did. he got ip form there. we then suspected who it was and direct connected to THEIR screenname, and got IP. SAME IP, same person, it was a person from school.
    well we told the school and i flipped out on her behind closed doors in the office, and sort of threatened her, out of extreme rage that she did this and i had proof. well, 2 days later, school did nothing, and terminated me for the threat!!!!?

    what actions can and should i take?

    If you have little money in your bank, but have a good credit score, can people still steal a lot of money from you? If you have little money are you less likely to be a victim?
    What I mean by steal a lot of money with you, I mean can they just start up new credit cards, or buy a car/house even if said victim is short on cash?

    You receive a email from (supposed) Bank of America, telling you your account has been suspended and you should open and complete the following attachment. It then tells you to go to the link in the email and login to your bank of america account.
    You click on the attachment, but nothing happens, so you delete the file. You then go to the website where it asks you for birth dat, bank of america password, social security number… You fill it out. The next morning, you realize a lot of money has been taken from your banking account.

    What should you do now that you’ve been scammed?
    Also, can you get your money back?

    Sorry its so long.

I tried calling Verizon but they just keep on sending me places that do not have my account. Does anyone know what to do in this situation. And will they take out the $500 bill from my credit because its making it bad.

    It was for cable and at the time i was a minor. (13) Today I am 18 years old and looked up my credit score and there was 2 counts of $160.00 and 679.00 that was not paid in 07. At this time my mother is the only one that had access to my social and my full name of course. My credit score today is 75 because of this. I have already contacted the cable company they said FTC would take care of it. I put a hold on my credit and already filed a i.d theft claim.

    What i’m asking is, it was cleary my mother. She keeps denying it, She was locked up in 08′ for a fraud check. But got out and got it dismissed. She has terrible credit because she hasn’t paid car payments and some cellphone bills. Do i file a police report on her? At the moment she has no income and lives with my grandma and my grandma supports her lazy ***. She replied “family dont do that” As in me sending her to jail i said “exactly.. family don’t do that…”

    What do i do? My father died in 06′ before all this, and my mom was all i had.

    I found out a couple of days ago that my son’s wife opened up a account with the electric company in my name. I moved from another state to Pa in January of this year. My son came to get me and I moved in with him and his now wife and 2 boys. I stayed with him for a little over 2 1/2 months and moved in with another person that I had met. Let me also mention that I am a disabled veteran and I needed have my records changed from the VA I cam from to the one I am currently going to. His wife helped me get the information I needed and made copies of my DD214 for me. This is how she obtained my social security number. In April of this year she opened up an account with the electric company in my name without my knowledge. She even went as far as to make out an application over the internet with the Post Office to open up a p.o. box in my name. They issued her a p.o. box number but in order for it to be opened she needed to provide a photo i.d. which obviously she could not. She took the electric company out of my sons name and put it in my name using my information. The bill was being sent to the p.o. box and since I had moved 3 times since living with him it finally caught up with me a couple of days ago. I immediately called the electric company and explained to them what had happened and I had the electric shut off at there address. Since April of this year she has made 3 payments on the account basically enough to keep it open. The bill is over $700 dollars and when she did make the payments she made them electronically. When I talked with the electric company they told me it looked like she made the payments with a check so I’m assuming she was using her own checking account to make the 3 payments on the account. Like I said I had the electric shut off and the electric company is sending me a fraud package. I made an incident report with the police department but because I live 2 hrs away from where they are and I am no longer in there county they couldn’t pursue it any further than the incident report that I can give the electric company to resolve me of the bill. The police officer also told me I would have to go to where my son lives and make a report with there local police department. Now as to why she would do this to me I will tell you…My son is 23 and she is 39. She has 4 boys and 1 of her sons is the same age as my son and one a year younger than my son. The other two boys are 11 and 8. I really didn’t mind my son being with her until I saw how she treated him. She treated him like he was a child of hers and I was not permitted to talk with my son unless she was present. When she would come home from work and let me tell you she is a Lt. for a security company. When she came home from work she would be all over him and I just thought that was inappropriate behavior for her to display around her two younger children not to mention me. I didn’t appreciate the lap dances and her head between his legs and it just goes on and on. I didn’t like it we got into a huge fight she told me I had to leave and I did. I went to stay with someone I had met and told them I was moving and she didn’t like it because she was depending on the money I was giving them. So I believe she did this as a sorta pay back. I want her prosecuted and put in jail if at all possible. I’m just not sure what steps to take to make this happen so if anyone has any knowledge of what I should do I would appreciate it.

    Greetings fellow Yahooers,

    I’m a recent victim of identity theft. I went to a dealership to purchase my car and 5 hours later 2 credit card accounts were opened in my name matching my full name, address and SSN. I would like to change my SSN. However, if my request is declined by the SSA how can I protect myself from future threats, and make a new identity for myself. I’m looking into changing my name and I’ll be relocation for my job. All suggestions are appreciated.

    Further details: I belong to Life Lock, and I keep all my important documents in a locked safe. I’m cautious, I do not carry my SSN in my wallet, nor was my wallet stolen. The identity theft is directly linked to the car dealership. A police report has been filed and my credit has been temporally frozen. I would like to make it difficult for someone to steal my identity in the future if my information has been sold online.

But the question is self explanatory. If some1’s identity is used during a crime, how is that corrected, how is a warrant removed from the “innocent person” being portrayed thru the criminal. How is their identity protected, how is the legal side of it corrected, & how does the victim regain their innocence… all knowledge from both ends involving this situation is desired (both ends being the criminal as far as what steps 2 take in correcting it, & the victim, as far as redeeming their innocence)

    So something happened and now I’m at risk of identity theft, the thief could have my SSN. I immediately called and placed a fraud alert on my credit and monitoring my credit through Chase. I’ve also placed a hold on my bank and credit card account to be safe. Now here’s where the questions come and I’m confused about them.

    1. Can I just call one of the 3 bureaus to place a fraud alert every 90 days or do I have to write to them?
    2. About credit cards, if the thief tries to request a credit card, would I find out before or after it’s issued?
    3. Is monitoring my accounts the only way to protect my credit and money?
    4. I probably should ask the bank this, but it won’t hurt to ask here. If I didn’t do a transaction with my bank and the money was already withdrawn, could I dispute this fraud?
    5. Any other tips or resources you can link me to?

    Thanks for taking your time and helping me.

    Ok so I have a strong belief someone is using someone elses pictures, acting just like them etc etc…

    however i’ve confronted the 2nd person, and She said “are you saying someone is using my pictures?”

    it’s more than pictures.

    So can I report possible identity theft of another user… or does it have to be the user themself who reports?

    (quite frankly I think/know the Girl is just playing head games – we have a past (if it’s the same Girl – which am certain it is), but she is getting real cocky for me to prove it’s the same person…)

    What to do? Report her a$$? Because i’m pretty certain joking about identity theft yahoo admins wouldn’t agree with.
    and hey if i’m wrong about it being same Girl, well i’d be right about identity theft.
