Grant Hall on Protecting Financial Privacy and Preventing Identity Theft

Keeping finances and property ownership a secret will protect identity and prevent identity theft and help you avoid privacy invasions.

Financial Privacy is a core privacy principle for all privacy advocates and will prevent bank identity theft and make you and your family and your property invisible.

Exercising your right to financial privacy is imperative as you attempt to protect your privacy from a number of predators who may wish to harm or steal from you and your family. Potential kidanppers will not be able to identify you as a worthwhile target when your bank secrecy and home privacy measures are in place. Use home privacy and banking privacy as described in the Privacy Crisis series.

Identity Theft Prevention is a huge benefit derived from obtaining home privacy. Of particular interest to many today is how to prevent a thief from stealing your identity in order to receive medical treatment under your name or the name of a family member. Preventing medical identity theft is a priority today as this form of identity theft is the white collar crime of choice among many identity thieves. Keep insurance policy names, numbers, group names, and the identities of all covered members private until the services are rendered. Refuse to provide policy information over the telephone to medical providers and do not provide Social Security Numbers, home addresses, home land line telephone numbers to providers. Instead, substitute mail drops, voice mail numbers, and omit the SSN for personal privacy reasons. These types of identity theft prevention tactics are necessary as many identity thieves have worked for medical providers and some have taken these jobs to gain  access to patients’ records.
