Credit card security?

What happens when a Chase receives a credit card application that was torn up and then taped backed together? The application also includes a change of address and a cell phone number. You got it. Issue a new card to the new address.

And what does Chase offer as a solution to prevent a credit card from being issued in your name? Just rip up all the applications they send as junk mail to you every day.


BBB creates new security website

The United States' 23 million small businesses are vulnerable to data security breaches, but free online tutorials are now available to help them.

Proposed IRS changes allow prepares to sell your return

Under a new IRS proposal, among the papers you are asked to sign by your tax preparer, could be a consent form that gives them your okay to sell your entire tax return.

Once you give your consent, information from your very private tax return could be sold to third-parties. This may include marketers wanting to sell you something or data brokers looking to profit from selling your tax returns to their customers. This type of use of tax return information is virtually unknown, but could include anything from unwanted marketing to more sinister uses like identity theft.

Send your comments on the proposal to the IRS.
