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."

The World Wide Web developers are constantly working to fix the many leaks that flow through the lines. However, the World Wide Web is just that, it is World Wide and it has a body of governors monitor the source, still it is not enough. Many businesses abroad the Internet are creating software that helps fight identity theft, but to date there is few that is stopping the problem completely.


It is wise to be careful when purchasing software to fight identity theft online, since few sources are out their offer software that fights identity theft supposedly, yet the sources are scams like few others are. It makes sense when consider software to fight identity theft to conduct a background check on the service provider and make sure the site is secured while offering privacy. If the terms and conditions do not clearly, state that the company will not sell, lease, or give your information to others then the site should be avoided.


Few sites offer products for fighting identity theft, but once your information is provided the company will sell, lease or give your information to others, and any information provided is the start of identity theft. Most people are reluctant to give out their social security number, however, if a person has your date of birth it can open the doors to gaining access to other information pertaining to you.

Therefore, your information should be concealed even if the comforts of your home, unless you absolutely without doubt trust your spouse or other family members. Personally, I would not feel comfortable giving my information to my own father, but this is me; therefore judge the protection level for you at your own risk.


Furthermore, to learn more every one should learn more about identity theft and preventing identity theft, since we are all subject to become the next victim. Once a person falls, victim of identity, theft it is difficult to find relief. Finally, identity theft victims have an ongoing battle, thus do not become the next victim and protect your self now!
