As a blogger when your signing up for different services sometimes you have to disclose your Social Security Number for tax purposes in case you make more than $600 for the year with the company. I sometimes wonder how safe it is to be disclosing that to places all over the internet. What else might they be able to do with the information.
Every year more and more people suffer from identity theft. Many services have popped up saying they can help prevent it but there is one called Life Lock that helps you keep all your information safe, by setting up free alerts with the credit agencies, gets you off all those pre-approved credit card lists, orders you a copy of your credit reports every year, and will take care of getting all your cards fixed and replaced if your wallet is ever stolen. One call and everyone gets notified. And if your identity does get stolen they will do everything in their power to get things back to normal.
