9780133089073: 50 Ways to Protect Your Identity in a Digital Age: New Financial Threats You Need to Know and How to Avoid Them

It is better to stop identity theft from happening in the first place than have to fix or repair the situation afterwards. Steve Weisman reveals the threats of new identity theft attacks based on use of Facebook, iPad, iPhone, Android, cloud apps, iPod, and other new technologies -- and shows you how to protect yourself, or how to fix the damage if you've already been attacked! Discover why ID theft is more dangerous than ever, and discover today's most dangerous new threats -- including attacks targeting medical records, personal finance and online banking sites, the elderly, and military service members. Meet the hackers and organized crime groups who want to steal your identity and money -- and learn how to protect your data and your life! Step by step, Weisman shows how to avoid risks, minimize risks you can't completely avoid, and immediately take the right steps if you're ever victimized. He objectively reviews new products and services that promise to fight identity theft, and previews emerging dangers, such as RFID credit cards. If you use a computer, the Internet, a smartphone, cell phone, tablet, or any other communications device, 50 Ways to Protect Your Identity in a Digital Age isn't just an indispensable wake-up call: it's the world's best resource for protecting yourself!

From the Back Cover:

“There’s no better authority on preventing identity theft than Steve. He knows the latest tactics employed by the bad guys who are committing this ever-evolving crime. This book is an important and invaluable read.”
-- Mike Nikitas, news and business anchor, NECN (New England Cable News)

“Identity thieves never stop probing for weakness. Fortunately, attorney Steven Weisman never stops countering their moves. This is a book that could literally save you from total financial ruin. Get it now. Read it now. Heed it now.”
-- Jim Bohannon, talk host, Dial Global Radio Networks

“The digital age has brought us many benefits, but it has also brought opportunity to the identity thieves who are able to use our computers, smartphones, and other electronic devices to steal our identities and cause tremendous harm. If you have a smartphone, you must read this book.”
-- Thom Hartmann, nationally and internationally syndicated radio and television talk show host and author of four New York Times bestsellers

“Weisman punctuates the frightening realization that no matter how vigilant we may try to be, anyone can still be exposed to the serious threat of identity theft. This book is a must-read for anyone who believes that they are well prepared and ready for the worst. Trust me. You’re not!”
-- Mike Baxendale, cohost of the Bax & O’Brien Show, WAQY-Springfield, MA

“In this digital age, Steve Weisman is your new best friend, and unlike your ‘friends’ on Facebook, he will not put you in danger of identity theft. This book is a must-read for anyone who has a computer or smartphone or uses social media.”

“In a world where increasingly we’re becoming victims of our own technology, Steven Weisman has written a book that every consumer, make that every individual, should keep close by.”
-- Steve Goss, WABE-FM Atlanta Morning Edition host
