Reminder Against Complacency.."130 million credit card numbers stolen in identity theft scheme"

This case which is apparently the largest identity theft case to appear in American courts and justice is yet another sobering reminder to us all to protect your personal information and ever important credit history with the same zeal we do anything else close and utterly irreplaceable as it is..

To fall victim to these lowlifes at this juncture of American culture and history with credit so hard to come by since the dem caused financial tsunami, just imagine the difficulties that lay ahead with destroyed credit histories....

Be vigilant and don't become another victim of a scams like these. These people make it their jobs to separate you and I from our hard earned money and personal information...don't be fooled.

I actually use this Lifelock service for an extra fence for thieves to climb, and at $10 a month it's both cheap and effective, so much I even have trouble buying things sometimes, but the temporary difficulties are well worth it in my view..I'm not selling it either, just happen to use it and it's worked for me.

This scum isn't getting their filthy hands in my wallet, that much I can promise.

Yahoo! News: NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. authorities announced what they believed to be the largest hacking and identity theft case ever prosecuted on Monday in a scheme in which more than 130 million credit and debit card numbers were stolen.

Three men were indicted on charges of being responsible for five corporate data breaches in a scheme in which the card numbers were stolen from Heartland Payment Systems, 7-Eleven Inc and Hannaford Brothers Co, federal prosecutors said in a statement.

The suspects also hacked two unidentified corporate victims, the U.S. attorney's office in New Jersey said in the statement.

Prosecutors allege Albert Gonzalez, 28, of Miami, and two unnamed Russian coconspirators targeted large corporations by scanning the list of Fortune 500 companies and exploring corporate websites before setting out to identify vulnerabilities.

The suspects would seek to sell the data to others who would use it to make fraudulent purchases, the statement said.

In one example, the suspects went to retail locations to identify the type of checkout machines, and after further investigation into the computer systems they uploaded information onto servers that worked as hacking platforms, the statement said.

"These servers, located in New Jersey and around the world, were used by the coconspirators to store information critical to the hacking schemes and subsequently to launch the hacking attacks," prosecutors said.

"The scheme is believed to constitute the largest hacking and identity theft case ever prosecuted by the U.S. Department of Justice," the statement said.
