Do you know how to prevent medical identity theft, the fastest growing identity fraud crime segment of identity theft? Start by understanding that medical providers including doctors, nurses, labratory technicians, hospital administrators, office clerks, and all whom you come in contact with as you seek medical treatment are strangers-not your friends. So, once you understand that these folks should be treated as business people, not trusting friends, you can be on your way to preventing identity theft, and hopefully avoid having your personal data stolen when medical provider employees are careless with your information.
Avoid medical identity theft by not providing your Social Security number to medical providers. Why? Because with this lone identifier, the medical identity thief can literally wreck your entire financial life. He/she can pose as you and receive medical treatment, open credit lines, borrow money for a house, and commit a host of other identity theft crimes.
Provide medical insurance information only when services are to be provided. Often, clerks will ask for medical insurance policy information, and other personal and confidential data over the telephone prior to scheduling the medical appointment. Tell them NO if you want to protect identity and avoid the identity theft fraud crime of medical identity theft.
If the medical service is only a routine office visit, I would opt for paying cash and claiming benefits under insurance plans at a later time to avoid medical identity theft caused by negligent employees of medical providers.

Personal privacy is making headlines these days as an identity theft occurs every few seconds and the crime of identity theft leads all fraud crimes. Consumer privacy is not easily obtained, especially in personal finances as banks, the pseudo government agencies try to milk consumers dry of their personal information for the “privilege” of storing their money with a government insured institution.
IF you are going to use a bank, take identity theft prevention seriously and don’t leave your money out in the open. Consider titling personal money in the name of a trust without referencing your true name. Investments can be held in a separate entity, too. And, those entities that are used should not include your name on the statments-just the entity name, in case your statments or other account information are stolen by an id thief. Without your name assoiciated with a trust account for example, Mr. identity thief won’t have a clue who is behind the account. In fact, that’s the way it should be. Only the bank needs to know who has signing power on a bank account.
Anonymous banking is best accomplished with non-traditional bank accounts. Check cashing stores sell debit cards with online bank accounts tied to the card, complete with a routing number and a bank account number. No checks come with the account, but who wants to write personal checks anyway? And the best part about these accounts is the ease of opening an account. It is common for individuals and business managers to open these accounts without providing a Social Security number or an Employer Identification number. Just try doing that down at the bank. My new book, Bank Secrecy: Financial Privacy Crisis Plan and Resource Plan lists resources for opening these accounts. Look for the e-book soon to be for sale at www.PrivacyCrisis.com
Ever wonder why identity thieves are able to grab a victim’s money when they commit identity theft crimes, the leading fraud crime in the country? That’s because living as the masses make it extremely easy for these white collar criminals to ply their trade. This article will help you prevent identity theft. And, a huge part of preventing identity theft is done through the implementation of certain identity theft prevention tactics that provide financial privacy safeguards designed to keep identity thieves away from your assets and out of your pockets.
Providing your true name and Social Security number is a horrible idea when the criminals have access to this data. And often, they do. Read my blog articles at www.PrivacyCrisis.com/blog under the identity protection and financial privacy categories to learn about the crimes that are often committed by insiders who may get a job at a particular company or agency in order to have access to the data banks that house the most personal and confidential data of Mr. and Ms. Public. Keep the criminals out of your affairs by living privately. Never give your Social Security number to anyone unless it is required by law to do so. Or unless the service or company that requires it is so valuable that you believe it is worth the risk to provide your most personal information identifier in order to get the service.
Bank secrecy and financial privacy is a process that enables one to keep all they own anonymous. We recommend anonymous safe deposit boxes, entitities to hold real and liquid property, and a private lifestyle that empowers the privacy seeker to travel, bank, work and live anonymously-in the U.S.A. or anywhere in the worldd. It is practical-when one devotes themselves to the study and implements the applications of the practice of privacy according to their needs. And it is all legal. Never, ever break laws for the sake of privacy.

Bank anonymously and use bank secrecy to make certain identity thieves have no links to your money. Do not hold personal money in your name. Instead, use a trust checking account or check cashing stores to clear your personal checks.
Homes for personal use can be purchased with borrowed money, but serious privacy advocates do not use a traditional home mortgage. In fact, a home mortgage is the most privacy-invasive debt you can hold IF you value your privacy. Structure debt to mask your source of funds for home purchases to keep your home location a secret as you borrow for the purchase.
Make certain to follow the contracts you have with your lenders. Never break laws for the sake of personal or business privacy.
Liquid investments can be held by a Nevada Limited partnership.

Can identity protection be achieved by buying identity insurance?
What about Bubba having access to that great big ole database?
The power of marketing is a tremendous force laid upon those unwilling to critically think about the content of the suggestions. Throw in a celebrity-type or better yet, “a lazy man’s way to …….” and you have a start at catching the public in a trap that no sane individual would stick their big toe into in my experienced opinion.
I think identity theft insurance is a sham. I see it as a marketing ploy with promises that cannot be kept by the clerks and pseudo managers who try to sell it. They try to hook you in through fear tactics derived from what I believe to be skewed statistics and mass media attention, and this is based on my experienced opinion, too.
Who has access to the database that houses your most personal and confidential information?
