[Alert] China is targeting us

[Alert] China is targeting us


Here’s a roundup of all the privacy and security issues that popped up this week:


  • Do you live in one of the top 10 states for ID theft, the list will probably surprise you: http://www.marketwatch.com/story/top-10-states-for-identity-theft-2013-05-07
  • Child identity theft, as I have been telling you, is on the rise: http://www.freep.com/article/20130507/FEATURES01/305070075/Abuse-of-children-s-identities-on-the-increase  (btw, you protect your kids’ identities the same way you protect yours, start monitoring their credit and watch for suspicious mail right away)
  • No real surprise here, but China has its considerable spying might aimed right at you-know-who: http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5iC2lHhEtzzUCeb94sBOYCVFkjEnA?docId=CNG.01e184ea6363d37846d3ffe17fe8f8cc.561
  • This identity theft uses a ‘skimmer’ device at a pump to steal your credit card info: http://www.wowt.com/news/headlines/Identity-Theft-At-The-Gas-Pump-206303411.html  (always pay attention to those credit card slots you slide your card into, if it looks like something was added on after the fact, report it and move along)
  • Here a nice little summary of the worst internet scams and how to avoid them, pass this along to your older or more gullible friends: http://www.foraywhile.com/5-worst-online-internet-scams-and-how-to-avoid-it/

I’ve got your back 🙂
