What does a thief look like in modern society? Are they strung-out crackheads? Or the devilishly good-looking James Bond types that you see on TV? Does it matter? In all honesty, no.
The Thief of Today’s Age Can Be Anyone
Your 16-year-old babysitter, the nerd you picked on in high school, and even your boss. And why is that? Because today the largest growing trend in thievery is identity theft, a crime where the criminal doesn’t even need to have a face, or even a “personality”! More than ever there has been a need to enroll in identity theft protection.
Even the Top Infamous Thieves of Our Age Wouldn’t Know How to Be Criminals of Identity Theft!
And that’s saying a lot right there. Ever heard of Robin Hood, the famous man in tights serving the poor?Or how about Robert Louis Stevenson’s fickle pirate Long John Silver and his hunger for treasure? Even the sexy and dangerous gangster couple Bonnie and Clyde would be scratching their heads about social media and bank accounts, because back then it was all about the tommy gun and toting bags of cash. Plus you can’t even beat Ali Baba in stumbling onto a secret lair saying “open sesame” and stealing from 40 other thieves (but he certainly couldn’t scam and hack his way into your daughter’s Facebook account, we think!).
These four thieves wouldn’t know what to do with this scheme called identity theft. It’s above and beyond them. They committed crimes, sometimes in the worst way — either fictionally or historically — yet your everyday identity thief could do so much more.
So take this advice — protect your identity. Immediately.Share
