Identity Theft Prevention Handbook Lays Out Major Security Risks For Yourself And How To Stop Them From Occurring!
Protecting yourself and your identity is a serious concern for people in the digital age that we live in. Knowing what signs to look for can make a big difference in keeping yourself out of harm’s way.
Identity theft is a serious crime with serious costs for victims. ID theft occurs when someone obtains your personal information - such as your Social Security Number, credit card or account numbers, passwords, among others - to defraud or commit crimes.
Victims of identity theft may lose significant money and time, and may find their reputation and credit rating has been damaged, affecting the ability to obtain loans for education or housing, approval for rental agreements, and approval for credit cards or large purchases requiring credit.
When we talk about preventing identity theft, we start with protecting your identity. It’s not just a question of your credit cards or blank checks; you must safeguard all the data a thief could use to compromise your identity.
In the book Identity Theft Prevention - How to Protect Yourself from Predators and The Dangers of Identity Theft! By Greg Mason, the author talks about different ways thieves operate, and how to thwart them. The book is intended to educate consumers about the steps to take when identity theft is discovered, and how to protect personal information to prevent identity theft
By understanding the different ways criminals gain access to your data, you can be best prepared to stop it.
Many people still think online hacking is where most identities are stolen, but in reality, thieves are more likely to steal your identity from your mailbox or your trash. They can also get access to your info by simply standing in the right place at the right time and watching you enter a PIN or password into a computer or your cell phone. The book goes into all of these different possible scenarios and shows you proven methods for reducing your risk as much as possible.
Even with the knowledge in Identity Theft Prevention, unfortunately there is no way to be 100% safe, since an identity thief could strike at a business or financial institution and gain access to your information there. The best you can do is to be secure in your own person, residence, and workplace. Identity Theft Prevention will help you make sure your identity is as protected as you can make it.
