kforlogoThis afternoon I was on KFOR’s Lincoln Live afternoon show with Dale Johnson and Officer Russ talking about preventing digital identity theft.

The interview was about 30 minutes, and there were some great pointers for keeping your pocketbook safe while you are on the Internet.

Working in the Service Center at Schrock Innovations we have at least one person every day on our bench who is infected with a program that attempts to steal their financial information simply by asking for it.

What Did You Cover in the Interview?

We touched on a number of topics during the interview, but these were some of the major points:

  1. How to cyber-crooks get your credit card number?  You might be surprised how many people give it up freely!
  2. What can the police really do to help you once you have become an identity theft victim?
  3. What is the one piece of software you NEED on your computer that stops financial fraud in its tracks?
  4. What are some basic safe practices that can protect your children on Twitter and Facebook?

    HI,
    thanks for sharing the tips about interview.these are very helpful.
    in my opinion:-It’s not uncommon to hear people with cellphones stolen. Usually, what one worries about is the value of the phone that has just been lost. One whines about losing all those important numbers of friends, family and business associates and feeling ex-communicated from the world. What cellphone theft victims do no t realize is the real danger behind those missing contacts. Identity theft.
