Identity theft is a serious business.
You: Are you in it?
No, I’m not in that business. I’m just saying, far better for you to take the risk of identity theft seriously vs. very easily becoming a victim of a stolen identity crime.
You: What should I do differently?
Not sure. It depends largely on what you do and don’t due to today. Fortunately, David from Money Under 30 recently published Seven Signs You’re At-Risk for Identity Theft. In my opinion, it was the best article among many featured in this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance, a well hosted event by Fabulously Broke. The carnival also included my article Learning From The Same Accident, where I discuss not only my (now full) recover from a recent concussion, but also a rehash of the financial and life lessons from Flight 1549, the flight that landed safely in the Hudson River earlier this year.
