Privacy is a basic principle of democracy, but these days it seems privacy is almost obsolete. Armies of government snoops, corporate data miners, identity thieves, private investigators, and even nosy neighbors can easily dig up as much information as possible on you, your loved ones, and everyone else. They can find out exactly what you' ve said on the phone, what you' ve e-mailed, the websites you' ve visited, your financial details, what you' ve paid in taxes-- or what you' ve paid for anything at all!-- and where you' ve driven, flown, or shopped. Crooks and scam artists can access your Social Security information, transfer money out of your bank accounts, issue themselves credit cards in your name, and even steal your identity. And that' s not all! We' re constantly under surveillance with thermal imaging, millivision cameras, face-recognition technology, scanners, and satellite technology. Is there any hope of reclaiming our privacy and saving our identities? Yes! Protect Your Privacy shows you how to plug the leaks, foil investigators, protect your financial records, and more. Learn how to safeguard yourself in virtually every situation, whether you' re surfing the Internet, chatting on the phone, or even dealing with overzealous government agents empowered by the Patriot Act. Discover how to stop snoops and scam artists before they have a chance to compromise your privacy.Long, Duncan is the author of 'Protect Your Privacy How to Protect Your Identity As Well As Your Financial, Personal, and Computer Records in an Age of Constant Surveillance', published 2007 under ISBN 9781599210209 and ISBN 1599210207.
