This is Information Is Not To Be Considered Legal Advice.


What To Do.


STEP 1.     Enroll All Your Domains in Domain Privacy.  Public Records indicate that a domain which is not enrolled in our domain privacy service may provide scammers personal information.  Domain privacy" may actually be a misnomer -- it's not the domain itself that's in need of protection; it's your personal information that's publicly available whenever someone does a "whois" lookup online.   Harvesting "whois" information is an easy way for identity thieves to impersonate you. We encourage you to be permanently enrolled in domain privacy.

STEP 2.     Protect Yourself Against Spyware. Spy ware is malware downloaded to your computer or website, without your knowledge or consent, that runs in the background and collects information about you: Make sure whatever anti-virus program you're running on your personal computers includes spyware protection, as well. Some companies, such as Lavasoft or STOPzilla, will offer a basic anti-spyware service for free, while charging for advanced protection.

STEP 3.     Use Caution When Entering Information Online. When providing personal or financial information online, be certain that you have a secure connection. The URL in the address bar should change from "http" to "https" or "shttp." A closed padlock symbol also often indicates that the connection is secure. (If you want to make your own website secure in this way, you may want to look into purchasing an SSL certificate

STEP 4.     Create Strong Passwords. We realize that generating strong passwords, not to mention keeping track of them all, can be a hassle, but it's critical that you have strong passwords for every site you use. You may also want to check out pwdhash.com. When you visit a site that requires you to create a password, enter a simple password you'll remember, but before you submit it, run the PwdHash browser extension (Firefox or Chrome), and it will invisibly generate a custom, strong password for that site. In the end, you only need to remember one password, which your browser is able to securely transform into a different, strong password for each site you use.

STEP 5.     Use Discretion When Sharing Information. Use discretion when updating social media websites. Even if you limit the number of people who have access to your profile, tweets, etc., keep in mind that the information is still published online and can be copied and pasted elsewhere. If anyone ask you for personal information, make sure they are who they claim to be and that there is a legitimate reason for the request.

STEP 6.     Stop Unsolicited, "Pre-Approved" Credit Offers. Opt out of pre-screened credit/insurance offers to prevent potential thieves from intercepting and accepting the offers in your name. Opting out doesn't affect your eligibility for credit or insurance; visit OptOutPrescreen.com for more information. You should also limit the amount of unsolicited emails you receive by customizing your spam filter settings.. .

STEP 7.     Shred Confidential Information. When disposing of papers with account numbers or other identifying information, shred them. This includes convenience checks that come with your credit card statement, as well as unsolicited credit card offers.

STEP 8.     Remain Vigilant: Review Your Accounts Regularly. Monitor your accounts online frequently, so you can discover potential issues without having to wait for bills or statements to come by mail.


You also may want to check out MyIDScore.com; it's a free service that reviews how likely it is your identity is being misused and provides ways you can reduce that risk..

The Free Money. The Free Money, you may receive a check in the mail in regards to a bank or credit card. It will look sincere. The check or draft will state that the bank or credit card agency failed to refund your account due to purchases.

The trick to this scam is for you to deposit the check or draft into you account. The check is normally for a very small amount of $1.37, what ever it is not worth the cost of the mailing and check. This check is them returned to the sender who gains information of your financial or credit card account. Always verify the check with your financial organizations.

Cyber Crime Made Easy.

Identity Theft.

Identity theft is the deliberate use of someone else's identity, usually as a method to gain a financial advantage or obtain credit and other benefits in the other person's name, and perhaps to the other person's disadvantage or loss.

The person whose identity has been assumed may suffer adverse consequences if they are held responsible for the perpetrator's actions. Identity theft occurs when someone uses another's personally identifying information, like their name, identifying number, or credit card number, without their permission, to commit fraud or other crimes. The term identity theft was coined in 1964.

Determining the link between data breaches and identity theft is challenging, primarily because identity theft victims often do not know how their personal information was obtained, and identity theft is not always detectable by the individual victims.

Cyber Crime Made Easy.

An October 2010 article entitled "Cyber Crime Made Easy" explained the level to which hackers are using malicious software. As one security specialist said, "Interested in credit card theft? There's an app for that." This statement summed up the ease with which these hackers are accessing all kinds of information online.

The new program for infecting users' computers is called Zeus; and the program is so hacker friendly that even an inexperienced hacker can operate it. Although the hacking program is easy to use, that fact does not diminish the devastating effects that Zeus (or other software like Zeus) can do to a computer and the user. For example, the article stated that programs like Zeus can steal credit card information, important documents, and even documents necessary for homeland security. If the hacker were to gain this information, it would mean identity theft or even a possible terrorist attack.
