Being a victim myself a few years back here is a story that everyone should take notice of...

The other day we were talking about identity theft-,24330,3353101,00.html on the show. Chris revealed that he was a victim a few months ago. Trying to clear things up was a long bout. Calling all the proper institutions, wondering what will happen to your credit, and sometimes paying for things you never purchased is frustrating. So I've put together some links that will help you prevent identity theft and deal with it if this crime happens to you.

Check your credit cards

CardCops will help you find out if anyone ever attempted to steal your credit cards. The site keeps a database of credit card numbers that were checked for validity by online retailers. Many have appeared in public places on the Web.

Enter your credit card number on the site. Your card information is encrypted so that your information won't be jeopardized and compared to the database entries. The database is updated daily, so check back often.

Get free legal advice

If something does happen, go to It explains how to resolve issues such as credit card theft, identity theft, and many other legal issues. The language is simple and easy to understand so that you gain the knowledge you will need to fight back and get on track.
