Summary

Protect yourself from identity theft!  Nearly 17 million Americans were victimized by identity theft in 2012 alone: for 13 straight years, it has been America's #1 consumer crime. No one is immune: children, the elderly and even the dead have been victimized. Identity theft can be high-tech, low-tech, or even no tech, via "dumpster diving." You're vulnerable, and you need to act.

 

Fortunately, you can take practical steps to safeguard your identity right now. In Identity Theft Alert , award-winning author and attorney Steve Weisman shows you exactly what  to do, and how to do it. Equally important, he also tells you what to stop doing: the common, inadvertent behaviors that could be setting you up as a victim.

 

Weisman starts with a clear-eyed assessment of the problem, helping you understand just how much risk you face. Next, he helps you understand, anticipate, and prevent all these frightening forms of identity theft:

  • Identity theft via Facebook and other social media
  • Identity theft via your iPhone or Android smartphone
  • Theft of your credit or debit cards, and other access to your finances
  • Crime sprees performed in your name
  • Medical identity theft that could lead to you getting the wrong treatment – and could even kill you
  • The fast-growing scourge of income tax identity theft, including stolen refunds

Don't be the next victim: read this book, follow its step-by-step advice, and protect yourself!
