I've been reading up on Identity Theft, a subject I studied in depth about 5 years ago. I have in the past week come up against some personal ID
theft issues, and have been shocked by how much more complex the topic has become.
Is ATS an appropriate venue for posting about this?
Not only for helping readers avoid being victimized, but perhaps as a companion to RATS, since people who ask too many questions might end up with
their credit attacked, their homes ransacked, etc.
How to end unsolicited Credit Card offers through public mail, that contain detailed personal info, and allow the bearer to set up an account
in the addressee's name (I just did this, in my own name, by repeating back information in an offer).

Internet security issues
Bump keys and personal security issues
IS anyone else interested in sharing info to minimize these threats to your lifestyle?
all the best.
