Avoid Identity Theft

Human ignorance shows the most when we take advantage of others; we don’t see that everything is interconnected and that upon hurting others we hurt ourselves. Thieves ignore the fact that their behavior affects society as a whole and therefore themselves; the unrest and distrust they create affects them as much as it affects everyone else … and they also fear theft.

Imagine a city without thieves! You could forget your wallet at the counter of a department store and upon returning you would find it untouched at the lost and found desk. You wouldn’t need locks at the gym or alarms in your car. You would also save money when shopping, for merchants wouldn’t have to raise their price to make up for shoplifting loses. Theft (crime) does not make sense, is the work of the ignorant.

It is interesting to note, however, that ignorant thieves create and develop sophisticated techniques and methods. I came across a video that shows the techniques used to steal the information on credit cards at any automated teller machine. Regretfully, this video is no longer available, but what they do is place a hidden camera that seems to be part of the ATM to steal your information. Be aware!
