Yanche, I think you hit it in the beginning statement. It is generally not your personal computer or copier that will do the bad guys much good it would be the ones from large companies or government offices that have the most potential, the copiers that are out of our control. Maybe the best deterrent to identity theft is to max out any and all credit cards, own nothing, and file bankruptcy, or better yet owe the IRS a lot of money and be on the run from them. Now who would want to be you?
It’s all scary stuff but I can’t let it keep me up at night.
