Considering how uptight a lot of people are about identity theft, I'm a bit surprised that this board has been open for a few weeks and not else has posted here.I used to be a notary public and had to notarize documents for people who had to deal with identity theft several times.Most common recommendation for fighting identy theft is to:1-Review your credit reports at least once a year. I think I remember seeing recently that the legislators are trying to make that easier by having the credit reporting companies provide one free report a year on request. Does anyone know if that passed?2-Always review your statements from anybody that has cause to send you one, be it the bank, the broker, or the credit card company.3-Get a shreader for your home. They are cheap these days and can save you a lot a grief latter. Expecially if your credit card company sends you "free" checks to use several times a year.There are so many ways to protect yourself from ID theft, but these are put forward to help get the ball rolling.
