Tuesday night I attended a neighborhood watch meeting where an HPD Detective who specializes in white collar crime talked to us about Internet crime and identity theft. He said that most identity theft is NOT perpetrated on the Internet. Rather it's still very common for the crooks to get your information by "dumpster diving" -- going into your trash for discarded bills, credit card statements and so forth.
These days it's important to shred any of that stuff before you toss it out. Don't have a shredder? Use scissors.
Or buy one of these: Fellows Shredder, $25.99.
