Phishing and Identity Theft: Protecting Yourself

Similar to how a pickpocket might lift personal valuables, online fraud is essentially information theft. The difference is that identity theft could occur entirely unbeknownst to you, and remain that way for a considerable amount of time while a criminal wreaks havoc on your financial circumstances.

While websites have a responsibility to provide a safe and secure experience, the users themselves should also keep in mind a fair amount of responsibility with regard to the way they surf. After all, the cities may provide roads and highways with signs and stoplights to guide you safely, but getting to your destination also requires you to drive with discretion, right? The same sensibilities apply to the Internet as well.
