oriented books, including J.J. Luna’s How
to be Invisible

Protect identity and the secret to avoiding identity theft

Consumer privacy principles will provide identity theft self insurance.  One secret used to protect identity and avoid identity theft is the use of a pen name as explained in this anonymous living article.

Official uses of a true identity

One may choose to use a pen name or an alternate name for all non-official purposes.

All official business including contacts with government agencies, police and law enforcement, property matters and other official business require one’s true identity. Also, use your true name any other time the laws in your jurisdiction require you to do so.

Right to privacy

Are you exercising your rights to privacy and your right to protect your identity? Protect identity through the use of an alternate name or a pen name for identity protection and privacy purposes.

How to create a new identity and how to disappear completely and never be found

Generally, one may begin to use any name he/she chooses for privacy purposes.

Common names are best suited for the purpose of personal privacy and to avoid identity theft. One can create a new identity without going through the courts in most western civilization countries.

Please check the laws in your state or country prior to using a new identity whether the purpose is to protect identity or accomplish other personal privacy or business privacy goals and objectives.

Once a new identification is assumed for all non-official business, an individual can easily avoid a privacy invasion that another may be subjected to when unnecessarily providing their true name when not required by law to do so.

For instance, you may be at risk of a privacy invasion when you allow personnel at the service station to know your true name, home address, home phone number and credit card information. One who uses an alternate name, mail drop address, anonymous cell phone number and pays for car services with cash may avoid a privacy invasion.

You can avoid identity theft and protect identity. You may be interested in a free course on how to protect identity and our personal privacy book and identity theft book, an e-book, Privacy Crisis; Identity Theft Prevention Plan and Guide to Anonymous Living.
