I buy all my computer stuff online. I have also bought alot of other crap online. Hell i had one of my best friends get her identity taken from her place of work same with my mom this year. Well they tried with hers, but got busted. They both had nothing to do with online. heh

I did nearly all of my shopping online last year.
No fighting last-minute shoppers, no driving around for 10 minutes to find a parking spot, cheaper prices, great discounts.

I love it...

I'm going to get started tomorrow morning.
Hell... My check may have already posted.

Identity theft here we come

I have bought probably about 300-400 things online with my credit card, and I continue to do so daily. Never have I had a problem whatsoever of identify fraud. However, one time someone stole my credit card at the gym, and racked up fraudulent chargers. People that are afraid of identity theft are the same people that don't buy steak because they are afraid of mad cow disease.

This year, I'm going to buy gift cards all from ebay. I can get a Victoria Secrets card, or a Lowes card for $87 dollars when they have $100 dollars on there. I routinely buy Wal-Mart cards for even better deals than that and never have been scamed. Just look at their feedback, and see what they are selling recently.

I am soooo Jewish. Why am I so awesome?

Identity theft here we comeI know you were kidding but for the sake of everyone here and as a public service announcement. That's not true anymore.

Actually until the majority of retailers get updated you have a greater chance of geting your credit card # stolen when you swipe the card at your local retailer.

Google wep. Most retailers use wep to encryt your credit card # but guess what it was broken years ago. Thats right they are using an encrytion that was broken years ago. You want to see how easy it is to do just go to you tube and search for wep. You will get step by step instructions on how to bypass the encrytion.

There is free software you can download off the net. Get yourself a wireless card and laptop and sit outside the local home depot and watch the transactions come onto your laptop.

I've spent the last 3-4 years of my career dealing with information Security. I wish I didn't know what I know. Ignorance is bliss in this case.

But, online is still the safest way to do business. At least they have firewalls and security policies to keep your information safe. Some teenage dude/dudette at your local store can sell your information online. Do a search. There are sites that you can buy social security #'s, credit card #'s etc just like Ebay.

Most of this selling/stealing of personal information is due to the Russian mafia and the Russian Bussiness Network. But the Chinese gangs are giving them a run for their money.

I tried, but a damn 4 in 1 curling iron was holding up my order. I ordered it from elsewhere. One niece and nephew down, one niece to go. I'm going to bed!

Will it always be the same one? I recently order memory for my laptop. I looked like crap when he came over (had basically just got out of bed), so I acted like I was sick when I answered the door...lol.

I know this wouldn't work for a 12 yo girl, but I've bought one of these each for my brother and stepdad. I love mine, comes in handy quite often. It's soooo small too!
