Fraud-prevention pitchman becomes ID theft victim

Posted in Business, Identity Theft, Legal, News on December 10, 2008 by truthwillrise

      There are a lot of companies that have sprung up in recent times that outright lie to people, this article being an example of one, that they can prevent Identity Theft and that it only deals with credit or finances and that it is a victimless crime. They are wrong on all counts. They will not take care of it for you; you will have to do all the work yourself, it is far more than a credit or a financial problem; there are four other areas of Id theft they are not telling you about because they know they have nothing for you. Identity theft is not a victimless crime; you ask anyone who has experienced this crime,myself included, and they will tell you that is not the case. There are two companies, Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc. and Kroll, Inc. that are helping people with this problem daily. They have the real answer for this crime. If members of their service ever become a victim, members have a licensed investigator who does the work for them in terms of restoring their identity. There is no other company or service that does this.

Fraud-prevention pitchman becomes ID Theft victim

SAN JOSE, California (AP) — Todd Davis has dared criminals for two years to try stealing his identity: Ads for his fraud-prevention company, LifeLock, even offer his Social Security number next to his smiling mug.

Now, LifeLock customers in Maryland, New Jersey and West Virginia are suing Davis, claiming his service didn’t work as promised and he knew it wouldn’t, because the service had failed even him.

Attorney David Paris said he found records of other people applying for or receiving driver’s licenses at least 20 times using Davis’ Social Security number, though some of the applications may have been rejected because data in them didn’t match what the Social Security Administration had on file.

Davis acknowledged in an interview with The Associated Press that his stunt has led to at least 87 instances in which people have tried to steal his identity, and one succeeded: a guy in Texas who duped an online payday loan operation last year into giving him $500 using Davis’ Social Security number.

Paris said the fact Davis’ records were compromised at all supports the claim that Tempe, Arizona-based LifeLock doesn’t provide the comprehensive protection its advertisements say it does.

“It’s further evidence of the ineffectiveness of the services that LifeLock advertises,” said Paris, who is lead attorney on the three new lawsuits, the latest of which was filed this month.

Davis learned about the fraud in Texas when the payday-loan outfit called to collect on the loan, he said. He didn’t get an alert beforehand because the company didn’t go through one of the three major credit bureaus before approving the transaction.

Davis said it’s possible driver’s licenses have been issued to other people in his name because of the widespread availability of his personal information — and because of what he described as the flimsy mechanisms in place to report that kind of fraud.

Paris noted that LifeLock charges $10 a month to set fraud alerts with credit bureaus, even though consumers can do it themselves for free.

But Davis stands by his company and his advertising gimmick, which has appeared in newspapers and on billboards, radio and MTV. He even broadcasts it by bullhorn on walking tours through crowded downtowns.

“There’s nothing on my actual credit report about uncollected funds, no outstanding tickets or warrants or anything,” he said. “There’s nothing to indicate my identity has been successfully compromised other than the one instance. I know I’m taking a slightly higher risk. But I’ll take my risk for the tremendous benefit we’re bringing to society and to consumers.”

The lawsuits, for which Paris is seeking class-action status, highlight the fundamental limits on how much security identity-theft companies can provide.

Companies like LifeLock can help guard against only certain types of financial fraud by helping consumers set up alerts with credit bureaus, which inform them when someone tries to open a new line of credit or boost their credit limit to finance a buying binge, for example.

The services don’t guard against many types of identity theft such as use of a stolen Social Security number on a job application or for medical services, or even the instance of an arrestee giving police a stolen Social Security number to shield his own identity.

LifeLock is also being sued in Arizona over its $1 million service guarantee, which the plaintiffs claim is misleading because it only covers a defect in LifeLock’s service, and in California by the Experian credit bureau. Experian accuses LifeLock of deceiving consumers about the breadth of its protection and abusing the system for attaching fraud alerts to credit reports.

Security experts say complaints about the company reinforce the time-honored wisdom of keeping your Social Security number secret.

“There’s been a lot of marketing, a lot of hype about LifeLock,” said Paul Stephens, director of policy and advocacy with the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, a nonprofit consumer advocacy organization. “The question is, ‘How much protection does it really buy you?”‘

“There is no company that can guarantee they can protect you (completely) against identity theft,” Stephens said. “Absolutely nobody can do that.”

Online Records May Aid ID Theft

This is another sobering example of how companies and government agencies and institutions are being irresponsible with our personal information. It is not people losing their data, it is these other parties doing so. There is nothing offered in the way of a solution. If you are not concerned about identity theft, you should be, and after reading this, you will be.

Online Records May Aid ID Theft

Government Sites Post Personal Data

 

Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, January 2, 2008; Page A01
 

Colin L. Powell’s Social Security number is out there. So is Troy Aikman’s.

Want more?

The “social” of Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler (D) is xxx-xx-xx34.

In an era when government officials from President Bush to local sheriffs warn of the growing dangers of identity theft, the full Social Security numbers of untold numbers of Americans can be found in file rooms and on Web sites run by, well, governments.

“This is very dangerous,” Gansler said after learning that his number had been posted on a Maryland government records site. “You know, a Social Security number is really the fingerprint to somebody’s identification.”

The Federal Trade Commission has estimated that 8.3 million Americans were victims of identity theft in 2005, the most recent data available. But the crown jewel in identity theft — the Social Security number — can be mined easily in the government’s own records, creating a measure of social insecurity for millions, identity experts say.

Social Security numbers are readily available in many courthouses — in land records and criminal and civil case files — as well as on many government Web sites that serve up public documents with a few clicks of a mouse. From state to state, and even within states, there is little uniformity in how access to the private information in these records is controlled.

A recent spot-check found the nine-digit numbers — introduced in 1936 to track employee earnings and benefits — on hundreds of land deeds, death certificates, traffic tickets, creditors’ filings and other documents related to civil and criminal court cases.

Federal courts have banned the numbers from appearing on public documents since 2001. And in recent years, many jurisdictions, including Virginia, Maryland and the District, have enacted laws or made rules barring various types of personal information from being filed with courts or government agencies. Most court Web sites in the Washington region list partial Social Security numbers or none at all.

However, millions of paper records were filed across the United States before the laws and rules took effect. Generally, such records are not covered by the prohibitions. And court clerks said it would be virtually impossible to redact all of the Social Security numbers in them.

“That’s just plain nutty,” said Wendy Jones, former acting clerk of the Prince William County Circuit Court. “I mean, we’re talking about hundreds and hundreds of thousands of files in our court alone.”

In Loudoun County General District Court, Social Security numbers were found on documents filed in 38 of the 48 criminal cases heard by a judge on a recent day. The numbers were typed or written on summonses, arrest warrants, criminal complaints and jail commitment and release orders, among other documents.

“I don’t like it. I don’t like it at all,” said the court’s clerk, Judith S. Waddell. “Would you like your Social Security number being disclosed to the public? I know I wouldn’t.”

A one-hour search of Maryland’s land records Web site found the Social Security numbers and signatures of two dozen property owners.

“It’s alarming, because the government should be setting the example in really trying to protect people’s private information,” said state Sen. Jamie B. Raskin (D-Montgomery). “Look, there’s a whole criminal underground now that thrives on stealing people’s credit cards and usurping their identity for as long as they can.”

A 15-minute search on the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation Web site found Social Security numbers on statements filed by creditors who had financed purchases by four consumers in Waldorf, Cambridge, Bowie and Landover in 2003 and 2004.

A dozen more numbers, including former secretary of state Powell’s, turned up on a Fairfax County site that requires a $25 monthly subscription fee. Powell, in an e-mail, declined to comment.

A Texas land records site had the Social Security number of Aikman, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback. Aikman, a Fox Sports analyst, declined through a Fox spokesman to comment.

Although it’s rare to find the numbers in new criminal court filings in Maryland and the District, they often appear on summonses and arrest warrants in Virginia.

Typical is the Nov. 13 summons issued to a Sterling woman charged with failing to register her dog, a gray Shih Tzu named Puzzle, which had been declared dangerous. In addition to her name and Social Security number, the one-page document — filed in Loudoun General District Court — listed her home address, birth date, race, driver’s license number, eye and hair color, height and weight.

“With that information, an identity thief could open up new accounts in her name,” said Betsy Broder, an identity fraud expert with the Federal Trade Commission, “because the identity thief has virtually all the information that he or she needs to open up a credit card account, seek employment if they don’t have legal status in this country, apply for a driver’s license or, if they are arrested for some crime, use this other person’s identity as their own.”

The Social Security number of another Loudoun defendant, charged with stealing a mountain bike and then failing to appear in court, was found on seven documents in his case file.

“This is an issue the General Assembly needs to look at,” said Loudoun Circuit Court Clerk Gary M. Clemens, president of the Virginia Court Clerks’ Association.

Identity fraud has been around for centuries. But widespread use of credit cards and the growth of the Internet have fueled a plague that costs businesses and consumers billions of dollars a year.


The problem took a giant leap in the public consciousness after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when it was revealed that several hijackers had used fraudulently obtained IDs to open bank accounts, rent apartments and board planes.

The federal government responded with a law in 2004 that mandated prison sentences for people who use identity theft to commit other crimes and prohibited Social Security numbers from being displayed on newly issued driver’s licenses. A presidential task force called on federal agencies last spring to “reduce the unnecessary use” of Social Security numbers, which it called “the most valuable commodity for an identity thief.”

But with a few keystrokes, anybody can view the deed to Jamie and Sarah Raskin’s house in Takoma Park.

The state senator said that when he refinanced the house in 1994, he gave no thought to the two Social Security numbers printed near the bottom of his property deed. But in March, he received a call from Betty “B.J.” Ostergren, an activist from central Virginia who pushes lawmakers and government agencies to take sensitive personal data off state-run Web sites.

“She said, ‘Do you know I was able to find your Social Security number and other private information about you and your wife online?’ ” Raskin said. “I was shocked, and I briefly flipped out, because, you know, these are days when everybody’s privacy is under assault.”

Ostergren’s site, http://thevirginiawatchdog.com, offers dozens of examples of public figures whose Social Security numbers have appeared in public records in recent years. They include former CIA director Porter J. Goss, former Florida governor Jeb Bush (R) and former Virginia attorney general Jerry W. Kilgore (R).

“The government loves to spoon-feed criminals by putting these dern records on their Web sites,” Ostergren said.

Raskin said he plans to call for legislation that would give Maryland residents the right to request redaction of their Social Security numbers from public records.

“The public certainly has the right to know who owns a particular property,” he said. “But I don’t think the public has the right to know what that person’s Social Security number is.”

Gansler cracked a joke when he learned recently that his number appeared on a real estate document he had signed in 1996.

“You can steal all of my money that you want. I don’t have any,” he said.

Then he turned serious.

“Our laws need to be tightened up,” he said. “There’s no legitimate reason why somebody should be able to surf the Internet and gain another person’s Social Security number.”

Project Paperclip: Dark side of the Moon

Posted in News, Truth/Freedom on December 10, 2008 by truthwillrise
This article outlines one of America’s dirty little secrets. Just more
proof that there are elements in our own government that operate
 against this Republic’s best interest.
Project Paperclip: Dark side of the Moon

The first group of Paperclip scientists

By Andrew Walker
BBC News

Sixty years ago the US hired Nazi scientists to lead pioneering projects, such as the race to conquer space. These men provided the US with cutting-edge technology which still leads the way today, but at a cost.

 

The end of World War II saw an intense scramble for Nazi Germany’s many technological secrets. The Allies vied to plunder as much equipment and expertise as possible from the rubble of the Thousand Year Reich for themselves, while preventing others from doing the same.

The range of Germany’s technical achievement astounded Allied scientific intelligence experts accompanying the invading forces in 1945.

Wernher von Braun

Supersonic rockets, nerve gas, jet aircraft, guided missiles, stealth technology and hardened armour were just some of the groundbreaking technologies developed in Nazi laboratories, workshops and factories, even as Germany was losing the war.

And it was the US and the Soviet Union which, in the first days of the Cold War, found themselves in a race against time to uncover Hitler’s scientific secrets.

In May 1945, Stalin’s legions secured the atomic research labs at the prestigious Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in the suburbs of Berlin, giving their master the kernel of what would become the vast Soviet nuclear arsenal.

US forces removed V-2 missiles from the vast Nordhausen complex, built under the Harz Mountains in central Germany, just before the Soviets took over the factory, in what would become their area of occupation. And the team which had built the V-2, led by Wernher von Braun, also fell into American hands.

Crimes

Shortly afterwards Major-General Hugh Knerr, deputy commander of the US Air Force in Europe, wrote: “Occupation of German scientific and industrial establishments has revealed the fact that we have been alarmingly backward in many fields of research.

“If we do not take the opportunity to seize the apparatus and the brains that developed it and put the combination back to work promptly, we will remain several years behind while we attempt to cover a field already exploited.”

Thus began Project Paperclip, the US operation which saw von Braun and more than 700 others spirited out of Germany from under the noses of the US’s allies. Its aim was simple: “To exploit German scientists for American research and to deny these intellectual resources to the Soviet Union.”

Arthur Rudolph
Arthur Rudolph: “100% Nazi”

Events moved rapidly. President Truman authorised Paperclip in August 1945 and, on 18 November, the first Germans reached America.

There was, though, one major problem. Truman had expressly ordered that anyone found “to have been a member of the Nazi party and more than a nominal participant in its activities, or an active supporter of Nazism militarism” would be excluded.

Under this criterion even von Braun himself, the man who masterminded the Moon shots, would have been ineligible to serve the US. A member of numerous Nazi organisations, he also held rank in the SS. His initial intelligence file described him as “a security risk”.

And von Braun’s associates included:

 

  • Arthur Rudolph, chief operations director at Nordhausen, where 20,000 slave labourers died producing V-2 missiles. Led the team which built the Saturn V rocket. Described as “100 per cent Nazi, dangerous type”. 
  • Kurt Debus, rocket launch specialist, another SS officer. His report stated: “He should be interned as a menace to the security of the Allied Forces.” 
  • Hubertus Strughold, later called “the father of space medicine”, designed Nasa’s on-board life-support systems. Some of his subordinates conducted human “experiments” at Dachau and Auschwitz, where inmates were frozen and put into low-pressure chambers, often dying in the process.

All of these men were cleared to work for the US, their alleged crimes covered up and their backgrounds bleached by a military which saw winning the Cold War, and not upholding justice, as its first priority.

And the paperclip which secured their new details in their personnel files gave the whole operation its name. Sixty years on, the legacy of Paperclip remains as vital as ever.

With its radar-absorbing carbon impregnated plywood skin and swept-back single wing, the 1944 Horten Ho 229 was arguably the first stealth aircraft.

The Stealth bomber

The US military made one available to Northrop Aviation, the company which would produce the $2bn B-2 Stealth bomber – to all intents and purposes a modern clone of the Horten – a generation later.

Cruise missiles are still based on the design of the V-1 missile and the scramjets powering Nasa’s state-of-the-art X-43 hypersonic aircraft owe much to German jet pioneers.

Added to this, the large number of still-secret Paperclip documents has led many people, including Nick Cook, Aerospace Consultant at Jane’s Defence Weekly, to speculate that the US may have developed even more advanced Nazi technology, including anti-gravity devices, a potential source of vast amounts of free energy.

Cook says that such technology “could be so destructive that it would endanger world peace and the US decided to keep it secret for a long time”.

But, while celebrating the undoubted success of Project Paperclip, many will prefer to remember the thousands who died to send mankind into space.

 

 

 

 

Hillary Clinton Ineligible to Be Secretary of State

Posted in News, Truth/Freedom on December 10, 2008 by truthwillrise

 

Hilary Clinton Ineligible to Be Secretary of State

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton is constitutionally ineligible to serve as Secretary of State in the Obama administration.

 

 

Newsletter Banner

According to the Ineligibility Clause of the United States Constitution, no member of Congress can be appointed to an office that has benefited from a salary increase during the time that Senator or Representative served in Congress. A January 2008 Executive Order signed by President Bush during Hillary Clinton’s current Senate term increased the salary for Secretary of State, thereby rendering Senator Clinton ineligible for the position.

Specifically, Article I, section 6 of the U.S. Constitution provides “No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been encreased during such time.” The provision is seen by most as designed by our Founding Fathers to protect against corruption.

Former President Richard Nixon circumvented this constitutional provision after appointing former Ohio Senator William Saxbe to the position of Attorney General. The Nixon administration managed to force legislation through Congress to reduce the salary for the position of Attorney General to the level that existed prior to Senator Saxbe’s appointment. This scheme, known thereafter as “The Saxbe Fix,” was also used to allow Senator Lloyd Bentsen to assume the position of Treasury Secretary under President Clinton.

“The Saxbe Fix” may reduce the salary of Secretary of State to previous levels, but it does not affect what is a clear constitutional prohibition. It cannot change the fact that the salary had been increased while Senator Clinton served in Congress. (President Ronald Reagan reportedly did not appoint Senator Orrin Hatch to the Supreme Court because of this provision.) Simply put, the Constitution does not provide for a legislative remedy for the Ineligibility Clause.

“There’s no getting around the Constitution’s Ineligibility Clause, so Hillary Clinton is prohibited from serving in the Cabinet until at least 2013, when her current term expires,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Barack Obama should select someone who is eligible for the position of Secretary of State and save the country from a constitutional battle over Hillary Clinton’s confirmation. No public official who has taken the oath to support and defend the Constitution should support this appointment. And aside from the constitutional issue, Hillary Clinton’s long track record of corruption makes her a terrible choice to serve as the nation’s top diplomat.”

Ex-ISI Chief Gul Exposes 9/11 Inside Job

Ex-ISI Chief Gul Exposes 9/11 Inside Job

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Wednesday, December 10, 2008

 

Former Pakistani ISI chief Hamid Gul appeared on the Alex Jones Show yesterday and shared his contention that the 9/11 attack was an inside job, laying out details that were censored during a CNN interview on the same subject last weekend.

Gul served as the director general of Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence during 1987-89 and worked with the CIA in the covert war against the Soviets in Afghanistan, helping to train the U.S.-backed mujahideen.

During the CNN interview on Sunday, host Fareed Zakaria attacked Gul and claimed his opinions on 9/11 were “thoroughly discredited,” but the majority of the evidence he presented for 9/11 being a false flag attack was edited out by CNN bosses.

No such censorship took place during the interview yesterday as Gul got in depth on why he considered 9/11 to be a staged event.

Gul said that he first went public on who he thought was behind 9/11 UPI two weeks after the attacks, but that the report was blocked by the western news media.

The UPI interview with Gul remains online and in it he questions the delayed response to the hijackings by the U.S. Air Force.

  • A d v e r t i s e m e n t

“9/11 took place on American soil, not a single person has been caught inside America even though for doing such a job I think a huge amount of logistic support is required in the area where such an operation is carried out,” Gul told the Alex Jones Show, adding that fighter jets were scrambled in the opposite direction to where the hijacked planes were heading as the attack unfolded.

“It is quite amazing that for a very long period of time the air traffic control did not report this nor did the U.S. Air Force act in time,” said Gul, noting that fighters were scrambled from bases further away than where the hijacked planes were.

“The time that it took was enormous, it was 120 minutes, a very long time in which to act – was the U.S. Air Force sleeping and if it was sleeping which heads were rolled?” asked Gul, adding that if the botched response was a mere intelligence failure then why was nobody disciplined or taken to task and why had nobody resigned.

“The air traffic control should have been re-hashed, it should have been turned inside out, but nothing of the sort happened,” said Gul.

Gul then questioned why standard operating procedure was not followed, stating, “In the past within minutes the U.S. aircraft has been on the wing of the hijacked aircraft, in this case it did not happen, the U.S. alert system is so high and it is so sophisticated that if a missile was to take off from Moscow and was to head towards New York, the U.S. Air Force and the missile system is supposed to intercept it within nine minutes….the system is in place but it did not work and nobody tried to question this.”

Gul then highlighted the implausible proficiency of alleged Flight 77 lead hijacker Hani Hanjour, who according to his flight instructors could barely fly a Cessna yet supposedly pulled off maneuvers that crack military pilots would have difficulty achieving in order to hit the Pentagon.

“The height (of the plane) was 9,000 (feet) and it came within seconds to a height of 1,000 and then went straight into its target, this is not possible for a person who has been trained on a light aircraft to be able to do this,” said Gul.

Gul said that he routinely confronts American journalists about why they do not probe into 9/11, and that they respond by telling Gul that the Patriot Act gets in the way and they are “not supposed to ask such questions”.

Gul said that as a result of 9/11 “everything has gone wrong with the world” and the motive behind the events being staged were largely geopolitical, and were used to exploit a window of opportunity for the U.S. to go into strategic areas where there was no U.S. presence before, as well as beating China in dominating the energy tap of the world, the middle east and south Asia.

Gul joins a raft of former government officials and intelligence heads in questioning 9/11, the most recent of which was former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, who last December said that the attacks were carried out by elements of the CIA and Mossad.

The Opportunity of A Lifetime

Posted in Business, General, Identity Theft, Legal on December 10, 2008 by truthwillrise

If you are old enough, you can recall a time where auto, life, and health insurance were unheard of. They are all common; health insurance is now something people steal, and auto insurance is mandated by law. There was a time where the fax machine was a hard sell, now it is an integral part of any office or business. There was a time where only the well off could afford cellular phones; now it seems everyone from eight to one hundred eight has a cell phone. All of these products went from new, and often vigorously opposed abs ridiculed, to self evident and mainstream. There were great fortunes made in all of those industries for those who got involved on the front end of those trends where the opportunity was. It is highly likely that most of you reading this missed the opportunity in all those areas but we have another golden opportunity before us.
There are two major problems in the United States, the fastest growing crime in the nation,Identity Theft and access to the Legal system. You cannot turn on a television, open a newspaper or a magazine without encountering the subject of identity theft. A google search of the subject nets you millions of results. There are over 20,000 victims of this crime DAILY! The FTC has said that ,on average, it takes victims 600 hours and thousands of dollars to clear up the issue. Identity theft is expanding and has surpassed the illegal drug trade in terms of criminal revenue producing activities as it is a $59 billion enterprise. As bad as that is, it is predicted that identity theft will expand 20 fold over the next 12-24 months.
Most people simply cannot afford to access our Legal system. The average cost of an attorney is nearly $200/hour, which far exceeds what most people make. The need for people to access attorneys has never been greater. Everything we do is encompassed by laws and we all encounter legal situations on a daily basis. We sign contracts , we get speeding tickets, people are getting sued, most people do not have Wills. These are just a few of the situations people encounter everyday and having that access would be of great benefit to all people. Tying this back to Identity theft, in over 70% of cases victims needed access to Counsel.
Both of these needs are now self evident; there are mainstream news about the Legal system and Identity Theft everyday and there are laws passed at the state and federal levels to address id theft.
We may never see another opportunity like this in our lifetime. There is the chance to position yourself in front of a tsunami, the wave can take you financial freedom for yourself and generations yet unborn. We missed those afformentioned trends but this time we are in the right place at the right time. Just like in those past shifts, most people will not take advantage of this prime opportunity; however those that did then and those that do right now can reap tremendous financial rewards. I believe that this information has found you for a reason and I certainly hope that you are one of those people.
