Identity Theft: Protecting YourselfBack to Top
Similar to how a pickpocket might lift personal valuables, online fraud is essentially information theft.
The difference is that identity theft could occur entirely unbeknownst to you, and remain that way for a considerable
amount of time while a criminal wreaks havoc on your financial circumstances.
While websites have a responsibility to provide a safe and secure experience, the users themselves should also keep in
mind a fair amount of responsibility with regard to the way they surf.
After all, the cities may provide roads and highways with signs and stoplights to guide you safely, but getting to your
destination also requires you to drive with discretion, right?
The same sensibilities apply to the Internet as well.
Basic Facts About Phishing
The premise behind phishing is for criminals to steal your personal information through some sort of fraudulent medium,
usually fake e-mails or websites.
Even information as simple as a social security number, birth date, or street address can result in identity theft.
Here are some tips on what to look out for, and how to deal with them accordingly:
- Pay attention to the e-mail sender. Sometimes the return address will come from a source unrelated to the company
Other times, the address will use a well-known company name, but send the message from a webmail account like hotmail or
These are obvious indicators.
- Phishing e-mails will use well-reputed company names as a cover.
Commonly used names are PayPal, Ebay, Credit Card Companies, or Banks.
If in doubt as to whether an e-mail is legitimate, forward it to customer service department of the actual company and have
them confirm that the e-mail is genuine.
- Oftentimes, e-mail messages will attempt to create a sense of urgency by threatening account suspension or imploring
you to confirm account information lest some severe consequence take place.
Don't be fooled by these tactics.
- Watch out for obvious spelling and grammatical errors, or overuse of capitalization or exclamation points.
These are immediately identifiable telltale signs.
- Note that most companies will not ask for any personal information in an e-mail message, including social security,
credit card, tax ID, and PIN numbers, credit card security codes, passwords, and your mother's maiden name.
- Beware of any attachments or links in e-mail messages, as they may carry potentially threatening materials.
- For links embedded in a message, check the web address and make sure it clearly states the address of the company being
- Never go to a website address that is an IP address - in other words, an address that is a series of numbers separated
by periods (e.g. 255.158.7.30).
- Do not "unsubscribe" from e-mails when the message does not come from a trusted source, as this could be
another attempt to try to have you click on links to disreputable websites.
- The best and fastest way to deal with phishing e-mails is to simply recognize them, leave them closed, and delete
Phishing websites use the same basic premise as phishing e-mails, except that criminals will go as far as to erect a
fake website of some sort that asks you to submit personal information.
Criminals exercise considerable creativity for website fraud.
On one hand, they may erect a fake e-commerce site and get you to submit your credit card information.
In other instances, the site may merely be a tool designed to install spyware or other foreign programs into your
Here are some tips on what to look out for, and how to deal with them accordingly:
- Many phishing websites operate under the guise of a well-reputed company or seller.
Other times, the design and function of the site are convincing enough to lure you into a false sense of security.
- For e-commerce sites, make sure that you are shopping with a trusted seller who is certified with some form of data
encryption os Secure Socket Layer (SSL) system to protect your information.
Most legitimate sites will display an authentic seal from Network Solutions or another internet security company indicating
that a site is protected.
- An easy way to check for SSL encryption is to look for the web address that begins with "https" as opposed to
just "http" on billing entry pages.
This signifies that the website employs SSL protection and your purchase is secure.
- Also look for the padlock icon in the far right side of the address bar, which indicates that you are operating in a
- If you are uncertain about the reputability of a website, check site reviews from places like resellerratings.com, or
even conduct a background check at the Better Business Bureau website to confirm legitimacy.
