    Great information about Identify Theft from our speaker, Avi Gingold! ID Theft seems to have become another one of those "not IF, but WHEN" issues!

    Avi Gingold, our organizer of Successful Thinkers
    Told us about Identity Theft that opened our blinkers

    His powerpoint presentation clearly revealed the real facts
    It showed the devious ways an Internet criminal acts

    Avi noted that I.D. Theft is really organized crime
    Those computer-savvy thieves are seeking our very last dime

    www.consumer.gov/idtheft for more
    There are three servicees available if we're dinged at our core

    Monitoring, Resolution, and Restoration can aid
    Thank you, Avi, for telling us how to protect what we've made

    May 28, 2013

    • Shabbir L.

      Hello, it was great to chat with you and know your interests. I would love for you to join my wife and I for a hike this weekend.

    The proliferation of smartphone use, particularly for banking and credit card transactions, is bound to increase the easy availability of our "private" information to the unscrupulous. ID Theft protection is not so much a preventor, but certainly an "early warning" as well as peace of mind knowing that I won't have to figure out where to even start in the process of the 600 plus hours of clean up.....for less than $15/month. Anymore, I think it's not a matter of "IF" but "WHEN", so in the universal realm, I've removed the target from myself because I have the protection as well as the peace of mind knowing that if it does happen, I have experts who will handle it.

    This is why we are Successful!!! Returning from a 3 day weekend to fill up the room with over 65 people!!! We do it because showing up is important to us even when many others are still vacationing... Plus this is our weekly treat to see our STN friends :-)

    Very timely subject for today. When I returned to my office, there was an email from a client who thinks she has had her identity stolen. Gave her a list of things to do based on today's talk.

    May 28, 2013

    • Avi G.

      Great. You can also give her my number. I would love to help.

    Returned home from Successful Thinkers today with lots to think about re: Identity Theft. Wow, Thanks Avi! And thanks every faithful member who showed up today despite the lethargy that can follow a magnificent 3-day weekend! It was worth it!

    Hello Avi

    I will not be there tomorrow, but will return next Tuesday. I do have to say that I drive 50+ miles to attend the San Jose STN meeting every week and it has been worth the time and travel to be a part of a great group of like mind Entrepreneurs.
