Identity theft is the most popular form of consumer fraud in the world, with thieves stealing money, identity or even a business. Each year, millions of people fall victim to a variety of inventive scams all with one purpose in mind - to separate you from your hard earned cash. More chilling is that not only are today's thieves stealing your money, they are stealing your identity and then using that identity to perpetrate other crimes. Jim Stickley is a well-known identity theft expert and regularly appears on national TV programs, such as The Today Show Stickley has posed as an identity thief who steals personal and credit card information, and then uses those examples to educate people on how to avoid being a victim. In this book, Stickley discusses the harrowing truths behind scam artists who prey on us at home, at work and in public. He shows how many of the things we take for granted - such as using an ATM, receiving an eCard, paying bills or using the high speed internet connection at a hotel can lead to having your life turned upside down.
