My rant today is about on-line identity theft. As an independent associate with Pre Paid Legal (we have the Identity Theft Shield), this is top-of-mind for me. It should be for you as well.
Today as I was surfing through the blogs I follow on a regular basis (you can find them on my blog list), I came across this article about hacking and identity theft. Talk about a coincidence. Today I had two separate meetings where we were talking about that very issue.

In the meantime, please take care. There are lots of things you can do to safeguard your identity. Shredding all documents that contain personal information, protecting passwords (on-line and with debit/credit cards), changing passwords regularly...these are some of the things you can do to minimize the damage. You can search on-line for lots more information and things you can do.
Unfortunately because we all live in the digital world, it is absolutely impossible to guarantee that your information will not be compromised. Don't be reactive...there are things you can do to be proactive. Just don't procrastinate.
OK, rant over.
Until next time...
