Offers a comprehensive explanation and discussion of identity theft, including how to avoid it and what to do if you become the victim of identity theft.

Identity theft is more dangerous than ever! The bad guys are smarter, more sophisticated, more organized -- and as we live more of our lives online, we expose far more personal information to them. Now, identity theft expert Steve Weisman reveals today's worst new threats, and presents today's most practical preventive techniques. Weisman shows how social media, mobile devices, and the "cloud" have created massive new risks, and how groups ranging from local hackers to foreign organized crime syndicates are exploiting them. He offers indispensable new guidance for avoiding risks, minimizing risks that can't be completely avoided, and reducing damage after an attack. This is the first book to offer complete, up-to-the-minute coverage of identity theft associated with:
  • Facebook and other social media
  • iPads and other tablets
  • iPhones, Android phones, and other smartphones
  • iPods and other media players
  • Cloud-based applications
  • New online banking and personal finance sites
Weisman shows how to avoid new forms of identity theft targeting medical records, the elderly, and military service members. He objectively reviews new products that claim to help consumers avoid identity theft. He even previews tomorrow's threats, such as radio-enabled (RFID) credit cards. This book isn't just an indispensable wake-up call: it's a comprehensive source of realistic solutions.

This is a well written informative book. Steve Weisman is an attorney. I recommend subscribing to his free newsletter on https://www.Scamicide.com. It is about ID theft and scams and is written daily.
