I've spent most of my adult life scrambling any information that may be
in any public or private hands so much that I've had trouble convincing
some organizations that I even existed. I've never had a credit card
other than my bank debit card and many people think you must be a
criminal if you demand privacy. I've been on to the identity theft
creeps for decades and don't get my mail where I live because for more
than 30 years I've used private mailbox services. I have a fellow who
receives all my mail and packages for me because I don't want anything
stolen from the mailbox at the front door or any packages left on the
steps. Identity theft happens because many people are idiots. Trust no

The reason I have such an "I give a shit attitude" is because *I* am the
person others must "beware" of.
My wife and I let a friend of our live here for a while
and when his first Social Security check arrive "care of" my name.
I just saw my own name on the check and thought it was my tax
return...and cashed it.
Though the bank should NEVER have accepted a two party check ...they did
and I never thought anything of it. When our room mate never got his
check I told him some crook must have stole it and "they will throw the
bum in jail".
All sorted now, but ....
