With tax season fast approaching and the issue of identity theft being such a HUGE problem. Why do the “powers to be” still require you to write your social security number on your check when you pay your taxes? Do they black it out when they go to deposit your check? They have your taxes right there w/ your SS# on it – but the forms don’t continue to circulate like your check does. – Vicky, Leominster.
Identity theft remains one of the fastest growing crimes in the country. Everyone, regardless of their age, is a potential target.
Do you ever get a little nervous when you realize how simple it is to buy things with credit or debit cards?
