Who are they? What do they want? What can we do to prevent it?
Identity theft and Internet fraud are two of the most significant problems faced today by individuals and society.
With the explosion of technology into what is becoming known as the “Internet of Things”, everyone is in increasing danger of having their identity stolen or compromised, or of falling victim to Internet-based fraud – and probably both.
There is no longer any choice. There is only so much that government and law enforcement can do to keep up with the rapid advances in technology-based criminal activity.
As individuals we must take action to protect ourselves, and our digital identities – increasingly out there as “digital clones” of ourselves, and increasingly vulnerable to being hacked and exploited by criminals, terrorists, and hostile governments.
Information is the competitive edge in an information-based society, enabling every type of human activity today. This applies to our healthcare, business competition, politics, government, and personal relationships.
Information Black Markets
Data acquired from multiple sources when merged with other data, enables criminals and others to use this data to hijack our identities for their own purposes, steal our money, and rack up debt in our names. Age-old crimes like blackmail and extortion have acquired new life, and no one – from politicians to business leaders to everyday people – is immune.
There are even online criminal markets for stolen identity information, where things like names, addresses, social security numbers, credit card numbers, personal and medical history, and much, much more, are traded, bought, and sold, giving your information even greater value to criminals.
Even legal entities like the companies we do business with, and government agencies at all levels, gather data about us every minute of every day. Legally or not, this data can be mined, bought, sold, traded, and compiled – and it is, everyday.
Information for millions of people and billions of transactions can be stored and moved on a thumb drive or other digital storage device, or transmitted in an instant across the world.
They Become YOU
Once a fraudster has enough information about you and decides to exploit that information, they can become you, racking up bills in your name, draining your bank accounts, even committing crimes using your identity. The ongoing flood of illegal immigration and lack of meaningful enforcement has helped fuel a huge and growing demand for stolen identity information.
Imagine waking up one morning to a knock at the door from police, arresting YOU for a crime you didn’t commit – IN A PLACE YOU’VE NEVER BEEN TO! It happens – more often than you think.
Imagine all of your bank accounts being frozen by the bank, because their computers can’t confirm that YOU ARE YOU! It’s happening today, to ordinary people all over the country – just like you.
It can take days, even months, and hundreds or thousands of dollars of legal fees, to sort things out and repair the damage done – and some damage might be irreparable – or your money might be gone forever, unrecoverable!
Extortionists and blackmailers may force you to pay them, or force you to do other things they want, with the threat that if you do not, you or your loved ones will suffer severe consequences – all while they sit safely in a computer center thousands of miles away and out of reach of law enforcement.
