Id theft Prevention Measures

Identity theft, one of the most insidious kinds of white-collar crime, is a government crime under the Identity Theft and Assumption Prevention Act. It occurs when charlatans steal your personal and/or financial information to use your credit accounts, tap your banking accounts, get new credit inside your name, file fraudulent tax returns, get cell phones in your name, accessibility your insurance benefits, etc. When someone takes your personal and monetary information, your life could become a living hell, specifically if you don’t realize what has happened straight away and the imposter has siphoned away from funds using your title. This makes adopting techniques for identity theft prevention even more essential.

Identity theft crimes make headlines increasingly more every day. You hear about them on the news or perhaps read about them inside the papers. The Federal Business Commission, the leading governments agency addressing the situation of identity scams, has reported a dramatic increase in the actual incidence of this criminal offense. Recently, FTC launched a survey in which revealed identity scams claimed a whopping Twenty-seven.3 million victims within the last five years and result in over $53 billion once-a-year losses to organizations and financial institutions. Accurate and up-to-date information is probably the most critical element in any kind of identity theft prevention determine. For this reason, Federal Trade Commission released a website annualcreditreport.com exactly where all consumers are entitled to a free copy of their credit reports.

The old saying \”Prevention is better than cure\”, is very much applicable for identity theft prevention. While condition governments, local and federal law enforcement agencies, and private organizations take new steps to minimize this threat, it is also crucially important for citizens to take responsibility to protect their personal information. As an identity theft prevention calculate, individuals can retain the services of credit-monitoring services that inform them when you can find changes in their credit record. Proper disposal of private information and other sensitive material is a vital id theft prevention technique. This could be accomplished by shredding files. Do not allow intact documents to be thrown in rubbish. To thwart phishing assaults, do not reply or perhaps click on links in the email that requires you for your account or billing info. Instead, contact the organization cited in the e mail by telephone or even by website you realize to be genuine, to ensure the contents.

    A person created a dating profile with my significant other’s photos and personal information. I have been in contact with this person through a dummy account. They have confirmed through private messages their first name, how they know my SO, and that they are using the information maliciously to damage my SO’s reputation. Is there any recourse I can take here? With so little evidence, are they still relatively safe from legal action? Or can my SO identify them with the information given and use it to make a legal case? If so, where would we begin in pursuing that? I’ve thought about contacting the local police and reporting it as harassment, but not sure if there’s anything that could actually be done. I have reported the profile numerous times and specified the reason, but the site has still not taken it down.

    back story:
    Recently I went to make a purchase online and my credit card would not work. After calling to make the purchase over the phone, figuring that there was a glitch between the CC company and retailer, I was informed that my address that I had given was not matching, which was not allowing the transaction to take place.

    I checked the CC website and my address had been changed to somewhere in North Carolina (a state I have never even been to) and the home number was changed as well, to a number I have never seen before. I called the bank and brought this to their attention. They closed my account and are issuing me a new card. There were never any unauthorized payments on the card (yet, atleast) but to be safe they closed it anyway.

    After some research on the bank’s part, they found that the information was changed in a bank branch and not online.

    This leads me to believe that someone has enough identification information about me to go into a bank as me… I do have identity theft prevention through my bank and am in the process of getting my credit score report to make sure no damage was done.

    What else can i do to protect myself, when it seems as if there’s another one of me around??
    (I have started burning all of my documents/statements in the fireplace now)
    I do usually use paypal as much as i can, but s this is my credit card, i rarely use it at all, which is why it took so long (2 months) to find this little chance. Last time i pulled it out of my wallet was at a hotel in Flordia, just because they need to have one on file.

    I have tried to make several online purchases with my Visa Debit card, and on every single one it says that the card failed or was not authorized.
    I have checked the details that I have entered several times, and re-written then countlessly, and yet it is still not authorized.
    I have checked with my bank, and they have told me that the problem is fixed, this was about 4-6 days ago, so I would think that whatever it was would have been fixed by now, but the problem continues to persist.
    Any thoughts?

    I did a research about ID Theft and found interesting thing:
    – if you recover data + hardware “combo” – then you are a hero .. you will get a reward from $10K-$100K

    – if you recover just data – then you are a “hacker” and should go to jail.

    There is no such thing as “reward for ID theft” and it makes me think that the whole ID theft thing is nothing, but another way to collect money from consumer .. this time to indure ID from being stolen. Am I paranoid?

    I first heard about “Loss Prevention” when I read about Kohls’s “corporate issued refund” on a site.
    I have questions….

    Who are they, I only know little about them? How do LP “look into your history”? Do they look up other non-Kohls stores to find out if the person has been returning stuff without reciepts just by checking out their ID info on the computer?

    How do they work? If they find eveidence of wrong doing, do they book em’ or call the cops. The reason I ask is because I want to get a job like that. It sounds interesting. I always wanted to be a private detective lol.

    ok hopefully this doesnt sound complicated. Me and my boyfriend live in an apartment that has some really bad people living in it, and tonight before my boyfriend went to work he came back in and said that our income tax return paper was laying behind the seat of his truck. I thought i got rid of it because it was a copy i messed up on but it was very odd that it was in plain sight for him to see. My neighbors are on meth and I know it and now I dont know what to do right away just incase they got our social security numbers. I know it was a huge mistake about it being in the car but I really thought I got rid of it, please tell me what I can do tonight to stop this. My boyfriend works 3rd shift and we arent married so I know there are limitations to what I can do myself.

    I’m not in law enforcement, but I am in the LP/AP business. QUESTION: ebay cooperates with LE, does it cooperate as fully and equally with store-level AP/LP investigations? If you have someone you are looking at, can you get a person’s seller ID without them having commited a crime? I want to get someone’s seller ID, but I don’t want them to know I have it (thus I don’t want to ask the employee what their ID name is) I simply want to monitor what they are selling. Anyone have any experience in this?

    my cousin got a hold to my kids ss# a few years back. after i found out about it and she had stole several thousand dollars from me that was supposed to be going to me. I talked with the IRS and Social Security Office several times and there is nothing they can do. I cannot get that money back and I cant put a lock on their number, or get their number changed.

    When I file my taxes this year, and if my cousin files and claims my kids, will she get arrested?

    She stole their social security numbers and has no right in what she did. I am afraid she may do it again.

    I recently had my wallet stolen. Since, I have been job hunting I had my Social Security Card with me as well as my drivers license. To me that says sometime next week or sometime two years from now, I could be in serious trouble of identity theft.
    I know myself well enough to realize that while I may remember to check one a regular basis for the next few months, I’ll eventually relax my guard.
    Is there a company that I can hire to watch this for me? It seems like there would be a growing industry for this sort of company. Pay someone an annual fee and they call you if something suspicious shows up…

    On myspace, my account was phished twice but I changed the password like they instructed so they couldn’t access it. I’m afraid of identity theft. The only thing personal that is up there is my age and my location (which I’ll change) and my pic (with sunglasses so my eyes aren’t showing). I only put down my nickname and the first letter of my last name. My birthday is not accessible to the public nor to my friends. Is that enough to steal my identity?
    Myspace blocked my account so they couldn’t access my homepage. They alerted me about this and I changed my password as soon as it showed up. Like I said, I did not put anything other than what I stated.

    I’m a victim of identity theft, long story short… one of the banks I have accounts with announced me that somebody tried to use a copy of one of my cards, I had no money in that account so none was stolen, taken out. A loss prevention officer from the bank told me the case was reported to police-police is involved, also the bank refuses to give me a proof that the fraud occurred and denies that it happened “it’s just a possibility that it happened”.
    I don’t understand why do I have to re-report the case to police, also can get a copy of the file reported by the bank to police, my name it’s involved in as a victim, or possible suspect? Why I wasn’t contacted by police if my name it’s involved in the case again as a victim?
    What are my rights and the loss prevention department obligations when I request a proof of the fraud from the bank? Can they deny that the incident happened? It’s irrational and the fact that they refuse to give me an evidence or any information regarding the theft.

    I received a bill in the mail a few weeks ago for a Prevention Magazine subscription that I DIDN’T MAKE! I don’t know why I received this bill but it was in my name. I suspect someone else signed me up for it (because an ex-friend has been signing me up for all kinds of telemarketing). So I called the customer service subscriptions number that I found on their website and it was an automated answering service that said “To cancel a subscription that hasn’t arrived yet, Press 1”. So I did and it said “Thank you. Your request may take up to two days to process.” And hung up. It didn’t ask for any more info. I also emailed Prevention and asked them not only to cancel my subscription but to tell me HOW I made the subscription in the first place (since I didn’t). They took two weeks to respond and when they did, they said they couldn’t find my account through the email address I provided. They didn’t bother reading the email or they would have found the account number and my contact info.
    So I sent a nasty email telling them to freaking read the email and find my account number that was on the bill, which I put in the email. Well, guess what – Today, the magazine arrived in the mail. So what am I to do? I DO NOT WANT THIS MAGAZINE! And they are ignoring my attempts to cancel it. If they don’t cancel the subscription, they will expect me to pay for it. I DIDN’T EVEN REQUEST IT! I need some serious help here. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks for letting me vent. Your advice is greatly appreciated!

    1) terrorism on foreign soil

    2) illegal invasion through open borders – includes terrorists

    3) removal or weakening of our 2nd amendment rights to defend ourselves

    4) Identity theft prevention through government control (Real ID)

    5) other – explain please
    Will the next president be able to protect us from these threats?
    http://www.yournextpresident.net/thefacts.php
    station, your reply:
    i could go on ad nausium giving examples of this. your 2nd amandment rights? Ha!!!! in the UK, the police don’t even carry guns!

    my reply:
    The USA has a US Constitution and Bill of Rights that was established to protect our sovereign nation from our enemies both here and abroad.

    We are not the UK and don’t want our elected officials creating the same open border problems that the UK is experiencing. It is a shame you just told the world that the UK citizens are sitting ducks when terrorists enter their country and the citizens can no longer defend themselves.

    No thank you. I rather like the protection our US laws provide us with. The right to bear arms. Try reading the 2nd Amendment sometime – it might work in the UK too if they offered the same right to their citizens.
    You have all given such great answers – adding to my list the North American Union, terrorist activities through imported goods, elected officials selling us out and betraying the US citizens, no government leadership to protect our citizens from terrorist threats in our own country, etc.

    I have to say that imports are a very large threat – especially now with all of the poisons in our children’s toys, medicine, personal care products, pet food, people food. Should we even continue trading with a country who is intentionally sending poisons to our country? Maybe the trade agreement should be reviewed? Thanks to our recent presidents, our country relies upon imports.

    So adding to the list, exporting jobs to foreign soil is another threat that I should have listed as well. Let’s bring America’s jobs home where they belong and where we can monitor what is allowed.

    Let’s find out also why the FDA is not doing their job and trying to take away our rights.

    Yeah Apparently I lost my Social Security Card (Well, my whole wallet apparently)
    And I went to the Social Security Office today and got a verification of social security so I can get on base but Im still worried about the person who obtained my Social Security Card along with my ID and CAC Card.

    How can I prevent Identity theft?
    I heard that the fraud prevention can freeze your credit reports but can screw me over later on when I want to purchase a car or somethin.

    Every day applications for cards are approved for persons with a security freeze on their credit report because the banks don’t always check. Could we use a law that says, if they approve a credit card during a period in which the person has a security freeze on their credit, they can not legally collect any money charged to the card from either a thief that might have stolen the customer’s identity and filled out the application in his/her name. Meaning they didn’t run the person’s credit it is their loss.
    What I’m trying to do is make it hard for a thief to fill out a card application in my name and social because the bank would see that my credit is frozen and automatically decline the card. They can’t decline it if they don’t check.

    Someone whom I don’t entirely trust has obtained my full name, year I was born and last 4 of my ssn. How concerned should I be and what should I do to prevent potential identity crisis?

    Thanks

    Thanks
    I was very ignorant and naive to disclose this info. The person that obtained this info was someone that was/is offering to help me with legal advise and wanted to do a background check on me. This person has no license or legal law firm, just much more educated in legality then I.

    At the time I didn’t think nothing of it, its just my last 4. Until later, I read its not hard to figure out the other 5. The first three are the location you were born and the middle two aren’t too hard to guess. I always thought the last 4 weren’t a threat, I mean, we give out those numbers for everything. Idk maybe Im worrying over nothing. I know now to be more careful who I give that info to. I would NEVER disclose my full ssn, didn’t think the last 4 were so compromising.

    I personally think its some end time stuff about to go down!! Like the mark of the beast– Gods people wont be able to buy or sell unless they accept the Mark of the beast!!!! I think the stage is being set up for the final tribulation!! Jesus is coming sooner than we think!!!!!!!!!!! In our lifetime!!!!!!!!!

    In addition to this.. The stage is being set up for a Sunday law!! Europe is officially changing calendar from Sunday thru Saturday to Monday thru Sunday!!!! The bible Sabbath falls on our Saturday– the little horn will think to change the times and the laws– We ought ot obey God rather than men.. The Sabbath is the sign of Gods Creatorship NOT the day of worship to the pagan sun god!! (ever wonder why its called Sun- day? ) Ever wonder why christians worship on the first day instead of the 7th like God commanded?? go to this site!! Gods command never changed!!

    I have a warrant out in LA for a grand theft charge, I was working somewhere and I let some people walk out of the store on four seperate occasions with about 300$ worth of stuff each time, The Los Prevention called me in one day into their office and told me that If admitted to it then Id be able to keep my job, before I knew it they were trying to get me to wait there, I knew the police were on theior way so I left, the next day I got a Voice Mail from a detective saying he needs to meet with me. When I was a minor I a strike on my adult record. Im 21 years old now but have never been on probataion since ive been an adult, I could really use so informaiton on what I should do next, Im scared the DA is going to try to use my previouis strike to double my sentence time of 16 months to 32 months. I need some words of wisedom.

    I’m just curious and looking for ideas. I’m, slowly, working on creating a folder for each of our horses that includes pictures and descriptions of all markings and scars. I’m going to put vet records in there, bills of sales and registration papers. Personally I’m terrified of my horses getting stolen and I really need to get a move on making these folders. But what have you done or what are you planning on doing to prepare for the possibility of your horse being stolen?
    Around where I live, it’s not the expensive horses being stolen but the friendly ones. They’re then sold at the auction for meat, which is why I’m worried about ours. I’ve been looking into freeze brands and micro chipping, but I can’t decide.

    i went into an old account of mine and i noticed that when i click on my new account which my old one doesnt have as a friend, it shows how many times i changed my profile picture and whenever i change certain things. How do i make sure that EVERYTHING is private and not just certain things?

    I’ve gone to Best Buy & Dvd Plant to buy movies & when I ask for certain movies they tell me they’re not available yet. But my sis & good friend bought them on the internet & when I look them up on Yahoo Movies & Amozon it says that the movies were released last year. I don’t like to buy things on the internet because i’ve had my identity stolen before, I could just ask them to order them for me but I don’t wan’t to bug them, they have kids & careers. So here are a list of movies that im looking for. Thanks a lot peeps!

    I’m sometimes asked to show my ID at checkout. I look 26-30 years old and do not buy any alcohol. I have observed the cashier does not ask ID to the people ahead of me. I have wondered if it is the way I dress or is it because I’m not white. I always use the “credit” option. Not debit.

    Now I would like to know how legal is it to not ask ID for the preceding person and pick me for proof of ID. Can I deny showing my ID? Can I file a suit against the store for discrimination?
    This is in san jose, california
    I dont think the price of my purchase is an issue. I did a regular grocery shopping which comes to 50-75 dollars in san jose. I cant say for sure of the cost, but the previous person had a cart full while I did not.
    the previous person also paid with credit card.
    I’m positive on this.
    FOLKS: I’m not saying it is not right for them to ask my ID. My question is can they randomly ask me and not ask the person in front of me ?.

    If a law is not applied to everyone then that is discrimination. isn’t that so ?
    I know my usage of the word random is self defeating. If should have used “seemingly random” instead.

    I called PNC bank(888-762-2265) a few days ago to report a lost card and had to enter my SSN over the phone in order to verify my account. Am I in danger of identity theft?
