I’m still worried about my friend John. Everywhere he goes, he leaves a little bit of himself for strangers to find and exploit. Take John’s recent trip to Stockholm, for instance.
Why am I so afraid for John? Identity Theft. I’m afraid someone is going to pretend to be John and get him in a lot of trouble. And frankly, John does enough of that himself.
But John won’t listen. Maybe it’s because the term “Identity Theft” is vague. The whole reason you worry about someone damaging your identity is because unless you have surgery or access to incredible forgeries, you will always be you.
When most people talk aboutIdentity Theft, they usually mean simple credit card fraud—someone using your financial details to illegally buy property. But there are many kinds of Identity Theft. Someone can pose as you to commit a crime or to get prescription. Your online identity could be hijacked to harm your personal brand. Loans can be applied for in your name. The possibilities are only limited by a criminal’s imagination.
So, we want to know: What does Identity Theft mean to you? What is the most irreplaceable aspect of your identity?
Read the rules and post your answer on the comments below for your chance to win Flip Ultra HD 8 GBcamera and F-Secure Internet Security 2011, which will help protect your identity.
