Identity theft

Written by Colin Devroe on August 31, 2005

Erik Sagen, author of Kartooner.com, wrote up a post trying to help all of us protect ourselves from emails which try to rob us of our identities by posing as legitimate correspondence from our banks. Now that’s a sentence that requires a sip of water to finish.

This article is near and dear to my heart simply because I’ve written similar articles as well. Erik’s Email Identity Theft goes hand in hand with Inventive spam, Identity theft via spam and Account suspended – multiple password failures.

Based on the sheer number of these emails which plague each and every one of us, I’m led to think that somehow somewhere these messages are successful. Have you read about or had any experience with people succumbing to these scams? And, have you read any articles similar to these that would be important for people to read to help protect themselves?
