Another friend of mine is as careful as me and had his identity stolen, so it's hit and miss, but I'd rather err on the side of caution.


    The bank might cover any stolen funds or credit cards used, but it's not an easy process to clean up.
    Nothing wrong with being careful. I also limit my online financial transactions. But being "buried in a database of millions upon millions" doesn't help. After all, your online transactions are also one amongst millions.

    You browsed cars yesterday, now car ads are on the other websites you visit. how nice.
    I wasn't saying that it's good or bad. I was just pointing out that not doing business on the internet doesn't prevent them from stealing your info

    My solution is much more basic.


    Be broke.


    It's been working pretty good so far.

    True, online transactions aren't so much a target, because they're looking for bulk info on bank acct's, credit cards and personal info. But they rarely get ALL the info out of a database, before it gets to be either too much or noticed.
