protect identity online and avoid identity theft

Now that you’re about to purchase a new computer, it’s time to learn how to protect identity online and prevent identity theft. You can avoid identity theft and the high costs, labor, and frustration it costs to fix an identity theft-IF the problem can be fixed, of course. Preventing identity theft can be accomplished through privacy living. By far, the best idea is to avoid identity theft in the first place rather than having to go through the pain and expense of rehabiliting your stolen identity when an identity theft occurs.

Online identity theft is a favorite of identity theft fraud criminals as it provides the criminal with information minus the phone or personal contacts other crimes may require. And many people have no idea how to practice online consumer privacy making the identity thieves’ jobs an easy task when they find an unaware target.

How to protect identity online

Use these proven principles and concepts to keep identity thieves out of your online business.

1. Buy the computer for cash while leaving no paper trail from the store to your bank account or credit lines.

2. Establish an anonymous account with an internet service provider.

3. Use a proxy server for online surfing and online research.

4. Use a pseudo name for all e-mail correspondences.

5. Avoid giving strangers online any personal or business information.

Identity fraud is a costly crime and through an online identity theft, you could become vulnerable to any number of identity theft related crimes.

 Medical identity theft and business identity theft are identity theft crimes that could occur if your e-mails contained information about your insurance policy or confidential business information.

Identity theft outlaws are a slick group of cons and often infiltrate forums and become e-mail list subscribers. So, as you manage your online business, be aware that certain “customers” may have motives to steal identity information.

We recommend privacy living principles that provide an individual and family with the ability to travel, bank, work, and live anonymously.

Will personal privacy living principles prevent identity theft?

Preventing identity theft should be a priority for consumers, and an identity theft prevention plan with privacy living principles as the foundation for identity protection, is the best identity theft protection.

Can you and your family learn how to prevent identity theft? Of course. Plan to implement privacy living principles in order to thwart fraud theft. Protecting identity is a necessary precaution today as identity thieves cash in on new types of identity theft including medical identity theft and business identity theft, two lucrative ventures for fraudsters that can be horrible nightmares for identity theft victims.

Prventing medical identity theft must be a priority as having your medical insurance policy hijacked could prevent you or a family member from having medical treatment authorized. Such a catastrophe could cause one’s injury or illness to be denied coverage with the result being damaged health or death to the real insured. An identity thief will not know how to grab your policy benefits when you keep your insurance company information confidential  and free from practitioners’ data bases unless treatment is needed. Even then, be careful. Some very cautious consumers pay cash to the providers and then claim benefits under their policy for reimbursement.

Business identity theft is an expensive crime and a costly one to fix IF it can be fixed. For the highest level of protection, use identtiy theft protection measures as I write about in Privacy Crisis: Identity Theft Prevention Plan and Guide to Anonymous Living.

My new e-book, Bank Secrecy provides business managers with privacy information and resources for anonymous banking. Look for it soon on the website.

How can identity protection prevent business identity theft?

Business identity theft can be a costly affair with the average cost running somewhere north or $10,000. However, identity theft costs vary a great deal, and I recall reading a 2005 statistic that cited 60 cases where losses exceeded $1,000,000 per case. So, protecting identity, specifically one’s business identity information and the controllers of the business, is certainly worth the effort, time, and money it takes to implement the identity theft prevention principles that I will discuss in this article.

Private Business Registration

Fraud theft will not occur when the identity thief has no idea who is behind the business. Professional practitioners, self employed business people, retirees who have assets under management, and others are well served to register their companies anonymously. We prefer Nevada as a business base.

Trust Manager Principle

In Privacy Crisis: Identity Theft Prevention Plan and Guide to Anonymous Living,  I coined the phrase, Trust Manager Principle. Through the use of this privacy principle, the trust is the front entity to keep management anonymous.

Business identity theft is a big deal, not only from a cost standpoint, but because of all the headaches and time expenditures necessary to correct the problm-IF it can be corrected.

Basic identity theft prevention practices including anonymous travel, home privacy, untraceable telephones, mail nominees, business bank secrecy, and an asset protection plan-if needed, can all serve the business manager well in his/her efforts toward preventing identity theft.

Protect identity of your business through the use of the Administrative Trustee concept, another principle we use to shield management’s identity from the business’ identity. I did not coin this concept. That credit goes to a very fine business attorney who provided this method of keeping management anonymous as they keep their business free from business identity theft.

Can you avoid a consumer privacy invasion by saying no to Ms. Clerk?

Clerks in big bureaucrats’ offices and their corporate partners’ offices want all of your personal information prior to providing basic goods and services in some cases. Is the American consumer brain washed or brain dead or both and unaware of the dangers of privacy invasions that occur when personal and confidential data is misused or stolen? Is it any wonder that a stolen identity occurs once every few seconds? Do you know that medical identity theft and business identity theft fraud continue to skyrocket out of control as the public kowtows to the demands of those who want to grab  their data and store it  in their computer databases for eternity?

For your information, the average business identity theft costs $10,000 and the typical medical identity theft case will cost the consumer a whopping $20,000.

Consumer privacy can be accomplished when assertive communication practices are followed.

Are small towns privacy havens or big bureaucrat traps?

Parts of the Midwest are sparsely populated with small towns. One would think that these folks would be of the freedom living variety. It appears the mindset may be present in some, but the knowledge base is lacking.

While on a family vacation, my wife and I made our way to the local post office to replenish supplies and mail letters. Since I had a couple of the certified variety to mail, I filled out the proper forms and could not help but over hear the conversation between Ms. Postal Clerk and a customer who inquired about renting a post office box.

Was Ms. Clerk interested in telling Mr. New Customer about the features, benefits and advantages of a p.o. box? Did she mention how wonderful their postal service is in “Small Town USA”? Hardly. Instead, she demanded a local drivers license, a utility bill, and asked privacy invasive questions about all who would be living in the gentleman’s house. Further, she demanded their i.d.’s for her verification prior to the renting of a post office box.

Mr. New Customer seemed caught off guard and perhaps a little shocked. After all he was in a town of only a thousand or two. However, he seemed willing to comply and promised to provide all that was requested of the clerk as I completed my business and walked out the door.

Personal privacy is often compromised by providing personal and confidential data to businesses and government agencies.

The receipt of personal and business mail through mail nominees has been used successfully by privacy advocates as described in Privacy Crisis.

Personal privacy principles prevent identity theft

Consumer privacy and the personal privacy living will prevent identity theft. This article explains some of the privacy tactics that enable one to avoid identity theft.

Use of an alternate name

Most people give up their personal privacy willingly and unnecessarily to anyone who asks.

Privacy seekers use an alternate name to register new computers and software programs, obtain all kinds of personal and business services, purchase telephones and telephone services, receive sensitive mail, register at hotels and motels anonymously, lease apartments, and do all other business that is not official business.

To protect identity, you may choose to use an alternate identity or alias, when meeting individuals whose contact is not of an “official” nature, or whose relationship will not lead in that direction.

Live under the radar

In order to have true personal privacy, long term, one can lease an apartment or house in a pen name. This practice of using an alternate name has been practiced legally in most Western countries and has been deemed as legal so long as there is no intention to defraud.

Unless you break all home address links from the information kept in credit bureau files and data banks to where you actually live, you are at risk of being tracked and traced to your doorstep by an identity thief.

Identity protection is a prudent security measure as the average medical identity theft costs $20,000.00, business identity theft damages often run about $10,000.00, and a garden variety id theft will average $3,500.00.

The hundreds of hours necessary to resolve an id theft-if it can be fixed, cannot be quantified in actual costs as the emotional trauma of having your good name stolen is a horrible experience.
