Keep Tabs on Your Identity!


This is not strictly a post on presentations, although I suppose the topic could be s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d to encompass it – rather it’s a caveat to maintain control over your identity, both online and in the real world.

Some time in the past six months, I became one of those proverbial victims of ID theft you hear about.

I found this out from the IRS.  But strangely enough, it wasn’t an unpleasant experience hearing from these good folks.

The IRS informed me that someone had begun filing duplicate tax returns for me going back three years . . . of course, seeking refunds.

They have sorted things out, apparently, and I’m on notice.

Then I discovered my email account had been hacked . . .


And then my website  – this website . . .

And then my Facebook account . . .

Ah well!

One must roll with the punches received . . . and learn valuable lessons.

Learn from my unfortunate experience and lock up your ID!
