The Facts of Identity Theft Apr 8, 2005
The book deals with every day instances in which, we carelessly throw out financial papers, seemingly innocent statements of bills and open ourselves up to invasion by simply not thinking about what the consequences of divulging information to people will be. It parallels Identity Theft from a US and UK perspective. It was a fascinating comparison of the two systems, which are very similar in some respects. It gives good advice on what steps to take if you have been a victim and also resources to check credit reports. It is very well organized and easily understood.
