bigstock Computer Data Privacy and Secu 940581 Do Not Be An Identity Theft Victim – Be Careful
Only when you have been an identity theft victim do you realize how painful and frustrating this crime can be. You are saddled with debts that you have not made, and nobody listens to you regarding this matter.

Unfortunately, until the fraud is proven, you are directly and wholly responsible for the damage the thief has caused; and proving identity theft  is often next to impossible since the thief used your authentic information, which he/she stole.

Stay safe with the following 2 very simple methods:

1.    Never give or key in your password or any financial information unless you see the site url starts with “https://”; emphasis on the “s” which means “secure.” Also watch out for a small yellow lock on the url bar which  means the page is verified and encrypted for your safety.

2.    Never keep your passwords or details of any personal or financial data in your email account. If your email is compromised, the thief will have access to all the vital information and nothing can stop you from becoming an identity theft victim.
