I was shocked to find three new credit cards in my mailbox. I did not apply for these credit cards. Someone had stolen my identity. my identity theft protection service did not notify me until after I received the credit cards. I quickly learned that they could not protect my identity. I joined Griffon Force Academy and learned how to prevent this from happening again.

DATA BREACH & IDENTITY THEFT

Every organization that you give your personal information becomes another potential source of a breach. Over ONE BILLION records exposed since 2005. Remember the Equifax data breach? It is safe to assume your information was exposed and is available for sale online. Bad guys can buy your name, address, date of birth, and SSN online for $1.00. Becoming an identity theft victim is not a matter of if, but when.

After many years, my husband and I had saved enough money to buy our first home. We found the perfect one. The title company emailed us the wire transfer instructions for our down payment. Then we received another email from them saying that the first email was incorrect. We wired the money and waited to close on our home. A few days later we called the title company to get the date for our closing. That is when we learned that they never received our money. The second email was a phishing email. Our money was gone.  If we had known about wire transfer scams we wouldn’t have lost our money.

TECHNOLOGY AND FRAUD

Technology is rapidly advancing, are you able to keep up? Do you understand how it works and how information is exchanged?  The bad guys understand this and use it to their advantage, putting you at a higher risk of fraud, cyber threats, and identity theft. One example is caller ID spoofing. Bad guys can use an online program that will change the information displayed in your caller ID to show whatever they want it to display. Do not trust the information displayed in caller ID.

I purchased a used car from a dealership. I took the car home and tried to connect my phone to the car. I was shocked to find that the previous owner’s contacts were still in the car. It also had their home address saved in the navigation system. That got me thinking about the car I had just traded-in. I never thought to remove my information from the vehicle before giving it to the dealer.

LOSS OF PRIVACY

We are discovering how organizations are selling or sharing our personal information, often without our consent. Take Facebook, for example. We are learning more and more about how they are using or sharing the personal information of their more than a billion users. We are also learning how even if you never signed up for Facebook; they could still have a profile about you. We are losing control of our personal information and our privacy.
