  • Washington Man Steals Over 1000 Identities


    While we often hear about international criminal hackers compromising
    databases and stealing credit card information, identity theft is often
    committed locally, by someone with access to sensitive paperwork.

    In one such case,
    a suspected identity thief was recently arrested in Washington, after
    driver’s licenses, credit cards, and Social Security numbers were stolen
    from more than a thousand victims across the state.

    Detectives believe the documents were stolen from cars and homes and
    used to open fraudulent bank accounts in victims’ names. Seized evidence
    includes bags of driver’s licenses, credit cards, credit card swipers,
    Social Security cards, and a list of thousands of names and Social
    Security numbers. It is difficult to estimate the total financial loss
    as the investigation is still underway, but so far the number is into
    the high thousands, and sure to increase.

    According to court documents, the suspect admits being involved in identity theft in order to support his drug habit.

    It is important to observe basic security precautions to protect your
    identity, like using a locked mailbox and checking your online
    statements often. But while you can store paperwork containing personal
    information in a locked safe and refrain from keeping sensitive
    documents in your car, there’s little you can do to ensure the safety of
    your personal information when it’s stored by corporations and
    government agencies.

    Consumers should consider an identity theft protection product that
    offers daily credit monitoring, proactive identity surveillance, lost
    wallet protection, and alerts when suspicious activity is detected on
    their accounts. McAfee Identity Protection
    includes all these features, as well as immediate assistance from fraud
    resolution agents if your identity is ever compromised. For additional
