"But, I'm very careful with my personal information."

Well, YOU may be.   But, here's an indication of what you are up against in your fight to protect your personal information.   The message below was posted on a Google newsgroup

Please note:   In this case, even if you completely trusted your Certified Public Accountant (CPA), can you ever be certain about who your CPA uses to fix his or her computers?!   Or, who works in your mortgage broker's office?   Or, the cleaning service that comes in at night to clean the office of your real estate agent?

Subject: I have a question! Some please help need money fast

I have my own computer repair business, and a couple of weeks ago I fixed a computer for a CPA if anyone knows what that is then you will also know that what I have is worth a great deal of money to the right people.

I have a clone of of the hard drive that is bootable, I mean perfect. On this hard drive is 700 clean never used names, address's bank info and of course cc numbers, 1.89 gigs worth.

I am not new to use net so anyone interested in this hard drive will in fact be put through the third dagree, as I don't need to end up in jail have afamily to think about.

I am not a newbie so don't try to [CENSORED] me. The drive is not kept in my house either ( in case feds r watching) The price for this hard drive starts at $20 grand, yup you heard me right I also know what the information is worth to those who know these things.

Tip of the Day
If you receive pre-screened credit card offers in the mail, but don't shred them after you decide you don't want to accept the offer, identity thieves could retrieve the offers for their own use without your knowledge. Call 1-888-5-OPTOUT (1-888-567-8688) to opt out of receiving these pre-screened credit card offers. The three major credit bureaus use the same toll-free number to let consumers choose to not receive pre-screened credit offers.
Today's Story
"My purse was stolen in December 1990. In February 1991, I started getting notices of bounced checks. About a year later, I received information that someone using my identity had defaulted on a number of lease agreements and bought a car. In 1997, I learned that someone had been working under my Social Security number for a number of years. A man had been arrested and used my SSN on his arrest sheet. There's a hit in the FBI computers for my SSN with a different name and gender. I can't get credit because of this situation. I was denied a mortgage loan, employment, credit cards, and medical care for my children. I've even had auto insurance denied, medical insurance and tuition assistance denied." - From a consumer complaint to the FTC, January 2, 2001
