HOW TO DETERMINE IF YOU ARE AT RISK!
Facts you should know!
You might be asking yourself, “me, an Identity Theft victim?” Well, the odds are “Yes” – you could easily become an identity theft victim … and the odds of this happening to you this year is a staggering 1 in 20!
Identity theft is the fastest growing white collar crime in America. It increased by 11% from 2008 to 2009, altering the lives of 11 million Americans.
Do you know that every time you use an ATM, you are at risk of losing everything you have in the bank?
Very few people give any thought to using their local ATM or the danger that is lurking there. It’s become a common occurrence today for scammers to set up shop at ATM’s. People as a rule do not think anything of pulling their ATM card out and inserting it into an ATM. All they’re thinking of is that they need a few bucks to visit the near-by coffee shop, pick up some groceries or go to a movie. However, ATM’s have become the modern-day gold mine for thieves at your expense!
This scam is covered in detail in my new report that I’m making available to you for free.
Discover what should NOT be included on your checks, especially when making a payment on a credit card account.
Are you aware that when you write a check to make a payment on your credit card accounts, you are putting yourself at risk? We have all been conditioned to place our account number on the “for” or “memo” line of our checks, right? You should no longer place your account number on your check, but instead you should do this…
This tip alone could save you misery and grief beyond your wildest thoughts!
Imagine if you will that if the statistics given above of becoming an Identity Theft victim this year prove to be a pattern. One in every 20 Americans is at risk of being an Identity Theft victim this year!
That statistic alone should be enough to make you start thinking about being more “proactive.” I think it’s also important to point out that the average amount of money obtained by a thief was nearly $1750.00. That’s a lot of money for most folks, perhaps not so much for others, but I’m not making light of it. I mention it to say this: The real problem you, as an Identity Theft victim face is the misery, the headaches and the grief you must endure in terms of clearing up the enormous mess with banks, credit card companies, credit bureaus and the list goes on. This can take months or years of your life to accomplish.
How safe do you think your personal identifying information is? Today, we must use our social security number for purposes it was not designed for. Our social security numbers were designed ONLY for Social Security purposes. The front of your card has a statement clearly reading: NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION! Today we have to use our social security number for everything that it was not intended for in terms of identification; from renting an apartment, to buying a car, to subscribing to cable TV or obtaining a phone. We’ve all seen the horror stories on the evening news of our personal identifying information having been compromised by the very people we entrust it to. I tell you this so you will better understand the following statement.
Close to 100 million Americans have their personal identifying information placed at risk of identity theft each year when records maintained in government and corporate databases are lost or stolen.
These alarming statistics demonstrate identity theft may be the most frequent, costly and pervasive crime in the United States!
Have you ever given any thought as to what you are “giving” to would-be identity thieves when you do a simple thing such as setting your trash out for pick-up? I urge you to watch this short video.
