Yesterday morning, at approx. 10:30 AM (broad daylight) while I was shopping at a local shopping center I had my purse stolen from a shopping cart. By some jerk off! After spending most of the day getting my bank account closed, a new one opened, and making dozens of telephone calls to alert creditcard companies, and everyone else that I had to contact - I ended my day at the local police department to pick up a copy of the police report. While at the police department I picked up a brochure titled ... Identity Theft. How prepared are you to handle this if this crime of "theft" happens to you. It has been listed as a "theft" and not an "assult" because the jerk did not touch me, when "snactching my purse". Take the quiz here ... Identity Theft IQ Test: Are You at Risk for Identity Theft? I fell into this catagory of the quiz - before yesterday; 50-99 points - Your odds of being victimized are about average.
