The old phone books used to have your name, address and phone number. That was all we really had back then, but we didn't really worry about it.

I post most all my information. I don't care who see it. I'm too ugly to stalk anyway.

Many freak out over their bank account number, while they have been publishing it to everyone they've written a check to for decades.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Good reason to use online bill pay, I haven't written a check in decades. Let the scammers mess with Wells Fargo if they want to.

The scammers are actually having a tough time getting through the bank's firewalls. It happens, but infrequently compared to how easy it is to infect your home computer with a keystroke logger and steal your internet banking password. Goggle the Zeus virus. The odds are that it's on your computer right now and anti-virus is completely ineffective in finding it.
