Keep Your Privacy While Getting Medical Treatment

Can a privacy conscious person keep her privacy in the face of a serious disability? Will a long term illness or treatment for an injury compromise a person’s privacy lifestyle? These are questions many will face at some point in their lifetimes. This piece will address potential privacy compromising issues one will face during a period of illness.
Calling a physician’s office may be the first privacy medical hurdle one has to clear as medical office personnel often attempt to obtain your health insurance information prior to making an appointment. You will be asked for your insurance company name, your policy and certificate number, and the doctor’s assistant will verify your coverage and co payment amount as you’re on the telephone. Your name, address and telephone number will be required information. Often your e-mail address will be requested but not required. Social Security Numbers will sometimes be requested and it is possible to keep this important identifier mum-and it is recommended you do so. Grant’s books are clear about how important it is to keep your Social Security Number confidential as you prevent identity thieves and other criminals out of your life while living a privacy lifestyle. In fact, preventing medical identity theft should be a primary concern as you get treatment as medical identity theft is one of the fastest growing white collar crimes in the country.
Once you have met the basic requirements for a medium level privacy lifestyle and have this identity theft prevention plan system in place, you will be prepared to avoid unwanted privacy invasions when an emergency medical condition warrants medical treatment. Your mailing address will not lead anyone to your doorstep, the telephone number provided for medical treatment cannot be traced to you or your family, and you can meet the requirements of your medical providers while keeping yourself safe during this period of time. If you need guidance on how to get started, we have resources that will help.

Privacy Living: Creating a New Identity

Why have countless individuals and families learned to live anonymously? What are the advantages of increasing personal privacy? Is it possible to avoid databases and travel, bank, work, and live anonymously? This article will be one of a series and will provide information and privacy resources for those of you who may be interested in adopting a privacy lifestyle. You may be interested in reading articles and subscribing to my protecting privacy blog and receiving our free e-mail privacy living courses. My best-selling privacy e-book, Privacy Crisis provides information on all aspects of personal and business privacy.

Advantages of the privacy lifestyle are numerous and there are various levels of privacy.

Living under the radar provides safety and privacy for those who want to avoid identity theft. You may want to know how to stop the stalking problem caused by a dangerous, abusive ex husband or other tormentor. Others want to protect identity and financial privacy and avoid a bank identity theft while exercising their right to financial privacy. My new book, Privacy Crisis Banking provides banking privacy principles for the business manager or individual who may choose to keep money and assets private. Those who want to borrow money privately can establish an invisible home mortgage and live under the radar while purcasing a home anonymously.

Privacy is like an elevator as there are many levels of personal and business privacy. Do you want to adopt the highest level of privacy possible? It may be necessary for you to learn how to create a new identity.

Do you need to learn how to create a new identity for privacy purposes?

Creating a new identity for all unofficial purposes may be necessary as one’s privacy is substantially increased when a pseudo name is used in lieu of her true name. Imagine a neighbor who is known as Jane Doesenberg who lives under the alternate name of Nancy Johnson. No one will be able to track Ms. Doesenberg as she shares a house with a roommate and uses the name, Nancy Johnson each day for privacy purposes. Making a new identity believable was not difficult for our fictitious character and this example has been used for educational and entertainment purposes in this article. She merely began using another identity to stop the stalking of an abusive ex husband.

How does one establish a personal privacy living foundation through home privacy? In order to do this, adopt a non-traditional approach when you search for a house or an apartment for rent. Find a property manager or owner who will rent to you according to your requirements. Do not allow your name, previous address, financial information, Social Security Number, work history, or current employment information to be entered into privacy invasive databases or your home address and name will be an avalilable record for those who tap into certain information thus allowing anyone who subscribes to a number of databases access to this important contact information.

Follow all laws in your jurisdiction as you exercise your right to privacy.

creating a new identity to cope with an internet stalker

Privacy living principles as described in our Free stalking protection series as well as our Free privacy articles will empower the stalking victim to stop stalking and cope with an internet stalker.

Creating a new identity is one sure way of breaking the trail from your old life-the one that the dangerous stalker has invaded, to the new you. When you create a new identity, only those you meet from this point forward, will be capable of invading your personal privacy. So, choose what you tell your new friends and acquaintances wisely, and carefully plan who you want to talk to about your personal life.

An internet stalker who knows you by a pseudo name will have no clue as to how to invade your home privacy. Nor will he/she be able to engage in phone stalking when you are careful not to tie your true name to your alternate name, as you buy a cell telephone for cash, and load it with minutes via a pay as you go card-purchased for cash, too.

An internet service provider account held in a company name or through a nominee is a good idea and will prevent an internet stalker from learning your true identity from an ISP privacy invasion. 

Phone stalking by an internet stalker will be unsuccessful as your location and personal information will be undetectable when your privacy living plan includes an anonymous cell telephone and a private internet provider service account.

Carefully guard your domain name through domain privacy principles as I have described in my best-selling e-book, Priavcy Crisis. You can be reading this book in just five minutes from now and begin how to force that stalker to stop stalking-no matter what form the stalking crime takes.

financial privacy guidance article with bank secrecy information

Bank Secrecy and Financial Privacy are the most sought after privacy principles. How does one obtain bulletproof financial privacy and banking privacy or banking secrecy today? You may want to begin your research by reading one of my first essays on the subject that was published during 2010 on a well known website. The Money Privacy Crisis was popular among those interested in financial privacy and inspired me to write my new book, Privacy Crisis Banking that will soon be available.


Why are nominees a bad idea for banking privacy? Regardless of whatever contract may be made, the person opening the account (nominee) will be able to claim the money. We recommend you follow Hall’s recommendations and handle all of your financial privacy affairs yourself.

The Ultimate  Bank Secrecy Account provides financial privacy by eliminating the ability of searchers to find money through asset searches. It is a legal way of regaining personal financial privacy and establishing a bank secrecy program without the need for two traditional resources typically tied to banking privacy; a nominee for banking purposes and an offshore bank account.


  1. It will present problems when attempting to insure vehicles.
  2. U.S. Residents will need U.S. Government I.D. when opening U.S. bank or stock brokerage accounts.

While there is nothing wrong with a foreign license as a legitimate document, it is not practical while doing business in the U.S.A.

What about offshore Banking? Is offshore banking necessary to accomplish banking privacy?

OFFSHORE BANKING  may be a mistake when banking secrecy is needed

Exceptions may be when individuals or business managers spend a significant amount of time out of the country.

Offshore investing may be a good reason to bank and/or invest offshore, but routine commercial banking services are usually best obtained in one’s own country.

Why is consumer privacy living better than id theft insurance?

Privacy living principles provide consumer privacy without the need for identity theft insurance-the oxymoron of the twenty-first century in the opinion of this privacy expert and author. In fact, identity theft insurance is actually a risk to consumer privacy-again based on my experienced opinion. Identity theft prevention is best accomplished through personal privacy principles based on my researce, experience and in my opinion.

Giving corporate clerks, mid-level managers, or managers of identity theft insurance companies your personal and confidential information is a huge risk in my opinion. Why on earth would a consumer privacy seeker want to turn over his/her Social Security number, home address, home and work telephone numbers, credit bureau information, employer, and more to strangers-no matter whether they work for an identity theft insurance policy or not? THEY ARE STRANGERS.

Through privacy living, one can prevent identity theft and make no mistake about it, preventing identity theft should be a priority today. It continues to lead the list of fraud crimes year after year.

How will banking privacy protect identity from identity thieves?

Protect identity through privacy living including a bullet proof financial privacy plan that provides banking privacy and you’ll have no need to entrust part time, identity theft insurance, clerks with personal and confidential information.

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

Are you searching for answers to your personal privacy questions?

Personal privacy is the buzz topic for many these days. And while informative sources including our personal privacy book provide detailed information, additional answers may come from you.

Against all odds and a true happening

I have not had difficulty sleeping in many years, but noticed mild insomnia over the past few days that caused sleep pattern interruptions. Upon awakening a few mornings ago, I pulled out a 668 page book, a philosophy-type of work that I turn to on occasion. Not knowing where to turn to exactly for my answers, I simply opened the book. There right in front of my eyes was a sub chapter heading on Insomnia. I read all there was to read-about a page and digested what I already knew, but was in need of a reminder as to the causes of my less than desirable sleep for a short period of time. I have experienced this sort of thing before, but this one really caught my attention. It taught me that many of our answers to our problems come from us through others. I asked the question, opened a book and  there was the answer.

Metaphysical sources for problem solving

I never discount non-traditional happenings. And this experience has enlightened me and made me aware of the importance of believing that within ourselves lies the answers to our most complex  problems. However, we have to use the available resources available to us.

Applications to privacy living

I continuously emphasize the need for strong communication as you strive to get what you desire.  Privacy living is a mindset, a way of life that empowers you to keep your business and personal privacy sacred. You need other businesses and agencies to help make it possible for you to accomplish your anonymous living goals and to protect your privacy. With that in mind, how you think is extremely important as your thinking and communication to those individuals associated with agencies and companies have the power to help you get what you want. Tap into yourself as you search for answers and use the best privacy resources to help in your decision making process.

Grant Hall wrote Privacy Crisis and numerous articles on business and privacy living.

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.
