Search - "identity theft"
Someone in Indonesia is using my email adress to order stuff from a site called Lazada. My email account is not compromised as far as I know. But It's really annoying always getting order confirmation emails in bahasa Indonesia.
I've got "kikis" phone number and adress. Any advice what i've could do to make her stop?18
I don't usually look at the "updates" section of my Gmail but yesterday I did. One message cought my eye: "Your application to Microsoft BizSpark has been approved" but I've never applied to Microsoft BizSpark!
Someone has registered in my name, opened a Microsoft Outlook account under my full name and added my startup details for applying to BizSpark! One issue though, he used some Spanish equivalent of mailinator to subscribe so I could easily reset the password and replace the security email. Now I have 5 visual studio subscriptions I don't know what to do with.5
Howdy this is a daily reminder on why you can't trust anyone with shared information.
I am back home from uni for the holidays and like any computer person who is back in town became responsible for fixing every tech problem that has occurred since my last visit. But what caught my eye when I approached the family computer is not the problem with the computer itself, it's the paper in front of the computer that, in giant lettering, has not only the passwords and account names of my mom and brother's AOL (She's old ok) and FAFSA account respectively but also someone's social security number. Any goddam baffoon who looks through the window or is able to take literally three goddam steps past the front door now has enough information to commit identity theft or just take over one of their accounts. I know it's not that likely but I still had a heart attack when I saw that.
How badly have I failed them?1
I go to such lengths to protect against identity theft online but when I go to apply for a job they want me to spill everything. There's no guarantee that this info is stored securely let alone sold openly.
I just got asked my high school final average like seriously wtf?1
