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 is one of the most appalling crimes ever committed, since when a person is robbed of their identity they often feel raped, robbed, stripped in public, and the list continues.

You should never give your Passwords to your emails, banking accounts, credit cards, or any source that provides Password capability. It is wise to change your passwords every six months or sooner to protect your identity. At home, you should always place your information in a safe place where only you can find the information when needed. At the drive-thru areas, such as pharmacies or banks do not give your social security number or birth date out loudly, rather ask the cashier to provide you a form to write the information.


To protect your self from identity theft, never allow anyone to use your credit cards, social security car, driver license or other valuable information.
