In Phoenix, AZ, a 24 year old woman was apprehended
for multiple counts of identity theft across three different
cities.


It seems, this woman committed her first act of
identity theft when she stole a purse from a woman's
car when she was dropping her child off at daycare.

Identity Thief Top 10 List Suspect Caught








According to a recent survey by Javelin Strategy,
33% of all identity theft cases which occurred
in 2007
were the result of a lost or stolen wallet,
checkbook, &
credit cards.

So, our tip for today, is to be on the guard against those
identity thieves who spot opportunities to steal your
valuable personal data when you are distracted.

Don't ever leave your purse, cellphone, etc. in
your car
without you being there as it only
takes minutes for a
desperate criminal to
make you their next victim.

But, identity theft will impact you with hundreds of hours
to clear your good name from the thousands of dollars of
financial damage an identity thief typically will cause.

Finally, be a good friend and tell your associates and relatives

Ok, if my math is correct, then that means the other 67% of identity theft cases reported were the result of data breaches caused by careless companies.

And Javelin's point was that it is the fault of all of us consumers which are causing record setting identity theft?

I've had my wallet stolen before and like an idiot, kept my social security card inside (hey, I was a silly teenager, what can I say).

Luckily, the only thing I had to deal with was a handful of fraudulent checks. And ever since, the social security card sits at home in a safe spot, where it should have been in the first place.

It is really important to keep important things in safe places. If you need to bring these everyday then it is important not to put it all in your wallet. Next thing to do, be alert. Don't trust strangers!
