Identity Theft

E-mail Scams for Identity Theft

Many e-mail scams will contain a link saying something like “click here to be removed from our list”.  Don’t do it!  Most of them result in more e-mail since they have confirmed that someone is reading that particular e-mail account.

For a look at the many various types of e-mail scams, please refer to the previous chapter, Internet Scams.  The next section provides information on more ways a thief can access an individual’s personal information.

Web Searches for Identity Theft

Back in the days when UseNet was the bastion of academia and harmless people, web users were far more open about themselves.  Old UseNet postings are commonly used by identity thieves, especially those that were posted in the mid 1990’s.

The following is an example UseNet group posting that could be used to steal identity:

Hi Marge,

Yes, Jack and I are very excited about our new addition.  We named him John Jacob Astor after his Dad and he was born on the same day, March 25 of this year, exactly 25 years after Dad’s birthday!

We are having a shower next week and I would invite you to stop by if you can:

Marge Astor
