Identity Theft by Phishing
Stealing Your Life: The Ultimate Identity Theft Prevention Plan
by Frank W. Abagnale

Stealing Your Life is more frightening than a gory murder mystery. Any one of us, from cradle to grave, is vulnerable to a swindle that can wreck us emotionally, cost us serious money, ruin our credit ratings, and take us years to straighten out. Identity theft is here to stay, and as long as legislators, businesses, law enforcement agencies, and individuals fail to take it seriously, the number of victims will continue to climb.

For thirty-two years, the author has been a law-abiding citizen; his criminal past, famously recounted in the book and film "Catch Me If You Can," is a distant memory. However, he knows how crooks think, and this knowledge has led to a lucrative career as a consultant for the FBI and corporations all over the world in preventing frauds and scams. Abagnale is horrified at how easy and tempting identity theft is for the budding criminal. He calls it "a crook's dream come true."

Identity theft may start at a certain level and escalate, since the thief may only have few details of your information available, but getting hold of the right information can provide him/her a surefire way of taking full control of your life. The impact of identity theft crimes is far more demeaning that other crimes, since a persons entire life is affected.


Victims of identity theft may be turned down from employment, denied credit deserving of them, and denied of rentals. Thus, it is next to impossible to survive when a person's identity is stolen. Unfortunately, the law is working to fight identity theft; however, they are doing little in line of helping the victims recover from the crime. The credit bureaus only place statements behind debts or bankruptcies acted upon by the perpetrator rather than removing the information from the reports, thus, the victim is victimized further, since assumptions is what most people use to determine a giving situation. In other words, the victim is rarely considered and often victimized further. The feeling of identity theft lingers for years when a person has fallen into the hands of a thief.


You may think it only happens to the unfortunate, or the people that are careless, however identity theft has claimed the lives of government officials, lawyers, cops, poor folks, rich folks, doctors, department store owners and the list expands down the religious leaders and so forth. Therefore, before you go throwing darts at the victims of identity theft you had better start reading information, since you never know when you may become the next victim. The downside is postal workers, cops, lawyers, doctors, religious leaders, government officials and many other are potentially the criminals of identity theft. You best friend or one of your family members may be your worst enemy and you will never know it until your credit files show unauthorized activities.


When you become a victim of identity theft, there is no turning back. You must fight until the end of time to make sure that you are not constantly being taking advantage of and you must learn how to accept denials of credit, thus you are a soldier in a one-man fight and the sole fighter is the victims of identity theft crimes.
