Identity Theft

Identity Theft - Don't let anyone get a hold of your information. It may take years to get it all straightened out again. Shred everything with your name and other information on it.

Have you or anyone you know been a victim of identity theft? Is it something you worry about and are vigilant to pervent? I know a couple of people who have had their identities stole and additional credit cards issued in their names. It took a very long time for them to get it all sorted out with their banks and the credit card companies. I am always very careful to shred any documents with sensative information on them now.

Not identity theft, but I've had my credit card number stolen. It sucked but I caught it right away.

This fortunetaly has never happened to me, but I think that's because I too am very careful about stuff related to credit cards, since I know several people who have been victims of theft.
