How to prevent identity theft

Friday, May 31st, 2013

In 1979, radical feminist author Janice Raymond published an anti-transgender book titled The Transsexual Empire. One of her main arguments against transgender people is that a “transsexually constructed” female cannot claim female identity because she lacks the requisite “personal history”—that is, she has none of the common experience, especially that of oppression, that defines women.

I find this logic problematic. Transgender women do live the lives of women, just not in a conventional or generally accepted way. While they may initially experience male privilege, it quickly melts away as they come into their true identities.

The first 10 pages of Raymond’s outdated, hypocritical, and bigoted arguments followed the fate of her “personal history” one. They entered my mind, were systematically disassembled, and then easily flowed out, their poison having been neutralized. On the 11th page, though, Raymond writes something that I could not fully neutralize, an argument that lingered tenaciously in my thoughts: “Why should castrated men take on these identities and self-definitions [of women]?…To what extent would concerned blacks accept whites who had undergone medicalized change in skin color and, in the process, claimed that they had not only a black body but a black soul?”

Raymond’s logic is flawed, and yet it seems to scarily parallel my logic for rejecting others who feel as though they’d identify with my ethnicity.

Now and then, people, usually Caucasian, will approach me and, with varying levels of seriousness, describe themselves as “basically Asian.” I, invariably, am offended. Too often, this Asian identification is of the “Urban Dictionary” ilk, and my internal dialogue of indignation sounds something like, “What does being ‘Asian’ even mean to you? Good grades and strict parents?” Many of these same Asian self-identifiers seem to simplify an entire race, and indeed many races: They do not understand and, even worse, reject many aspects of Asian-American identity integral to my experience as an Asian American—like discrimination, for example. And how could they understand? After all, many of them have never been discriminated against or oppressed because of their ethnicity. The experience of Asian discrimination is something I can talk about and share comfortably with most of my Asian peers, but the topic seems almost impossible to broach with others who do not have a shared history—those who, in short, are not Asian.

If Raymond’s logic makes her transphobic, what does it make me when I use it in the context of ethnicity?

When I consider the source of my own ethnic identification, much of it seems to stem from a pronounced protective instinct over my “kin,” my people who are oppressed for the same reasons and in the same ways.

However, many other Asians I spoke to first invoked other sources of identity, such as language and culture. As someone raised in America who only speaks English, I myself did not even fit within many of these tenets of Asian identity.

Previously, I had painted myself as a “gatekeeper” to Asian identity, a judge rejecting those who did not understand. But suddenly I could remember being told by other Koreans that I wasn’t a “real” Korean— that the fact that I didn’t speak the language or didn’t know enough of the culture or didn’t act like a proper Korean girl somehow stripped me of my identity. And I remember a very different form of indignation then: “How dare they tell me what I am and what I am not? How dare they put a language requirement on identity? I am Korean.”

How individuals choose to interpret and identify by a certain label is varied and unique. Perhaps we need to stop worrying about how well others adhere to our own interpretations.

Feminism has faced significant criticism for looking at the meaning of “woman” too narrowly, only acknowledging Western or, in Raymond’s case, biological interpretations of the term. As a response, feminism moved into its third wave, which aims to embrace the diversity of conceptions of “woman,” and seems less concerned with identifying the true form of “woman” and more with establishing the freedom of women to express femininity in a variety of ways.

Though it often seems that a concept must have boundaries to have significance—so that we can define what it is as well as what it is not—removing restrictions from the expression of femininity seems not to detract from the meaning of a feminine identity but instead reveals its truer significance.

Transethnicity is an extremely controversial topic. In my eyes, many of the self-identified “Asians” who approached me remain objectifiers. They chose to identify in a way that reduces my race to a tool for their own use—a casually racist shorthand for culturally unrelated traits. Cultural appropriation and orientalism are still very real concerns. That said, I have never met someone who truly identifies as transethnic or who has considered making the transition from one ethnicity to another. I couldn’t find any significant papers on the topic—only Tumblr drama—so I feel uncomfortable commenting on the legitimacy of people who identify as such.

I do think, though, that it would benefit us to move forward from questioning the self-identification of others, especially within ethnic groups. I should not have to have the legitimacy of my “Asian-ness” doubted. When we question each other in this way, we are discriminating against ourselves—we reduce and limit our identities in the same vein as those who casually label themselves with it. If we are to create a true, non-objectifying perception of our own races, we must welcome all forms of its expression.

Couple Accused Of Identity Theft

Friday, May 31st, 2013

WILKES-BARRE — A couple from Luzerne County is accused of stealing credit card information from Lord Taylor customers.

Farouk Rivera was arraigned Thursday on theft charges but a county detective says his wife Sabrina Rivera still remains at large.

Authorities say Farouk Rivera confessed to stealing the credit card numbers of about 75 customers at the retail store Lord Taylor.

Authorities say Rivera did so, with the help of his wife Sabrina, who works at the store.

According to the Luzerne County District Attorney’s office, police were able to trace the charges back to the couple, who they say  racked up thousands of dollars, because they had items shipped to their home in Wilkes-Barre.

Anyone with information on Sabrina Rivera should contact police.

Could stolen wallet lead to identity theft?

Friday, May 31st, 2013

<!–

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jeff Hirshberg, 66, is still trying to recover from Wednesday. That’s when he said his wallet was stolen.

“Which means my credit cards, drivers license (are somewhere),” said Hirshberg.

Janice Hirshberg, 65, his wife and a retired attorney, said the experience has turned their lives upside down.

The Hirshbergs said it began with a trip to their Baymeadows bank where they withdrew several hundred dollars. Somewhere between the bank and home, they became the victim of a crime.

“He could have had his pocket picked,” said Hirshberg, “I don’t know.”

They’ve filed a police report and notified the bank and their credit card companies, but now they’re afraid.

“You don’t feel safe anymore,” she said. 

They’re afraid for not just their safety, but there’s a real possibility that they could become victims of identity theft.

“My biggest concern is getting all of my personal information back,” he said.

They now subscribe to a service that monitors their identity, but they also know that ID theft is a real crime. While it seems victimless, it is not. They are doing whatever it takes to protect their name. 

“Restoring our name,” said Hirshberg, “I want to restore our name.”  

When we met them, they were going to the DMV for a new license to start the process, even if he never recovers his wallet.

We’ve heard so much about protecting information online, but what about offline?

First for you:

-Limit what personal information you may carry in your glove compartment

-Keep your personal information secure from co-workers or roommates

-Carry only the identification, credit and debit cards you need

-Leave your Social Security card at home

-Make a copy of your Medicare card and black out all but the last four digits on the copy. Carry the copy with you, unless you are going to use your card at the doctor’s office.

The Online Rental Market Is Becoming A Hot Bed For Scams

Friday, May 31st, 2013

kathleen perkins brooklyn carriage house tour that kevin spacey rented

Meredith Galante/Business Insider

Since lenders have tightened their requirements for getting a mortgage — which is making it harder to buy a home — the rental market is hot right now. Turns out, so is the online identity theft market, which is why it’s no surprise that identity thieves are attacking people who are looking to rent.

How do they do it?

Melania Mirzakhanian, Broker and Director of Operations at Tomea, Inc., said that some identity thieves try to get people’s personal information by posting phony online advertisements for rentals.

“Identity thieves may also pose as real estate agents and through that route obtain personal information,” she said, “especially if transactions are conducted online only.”

It’s important that people know how to avoid falling into identity thieves’ trap. Here are some tips that can help prevent you from becoming a victim of identity theft when looking for a home:

1. Avoid extremely low-priced listings

Just because the price is appealing, doesn’t mean it is a legitimate listing and it’s important to not let the attractive price lure you into their trap. Kevin Sali, criminal defense attorney in Portland, Oregon, said that an unusually low price is an immediate red flag. “In many of these scams, the victim is told that there are many people interested in the property and why wouldn’t there be? The price is ridiculously attractive, which is another indication that this could be a scam,” he said.

2. Do your research

This is one of most important steps you can do to prevent someone from stealing your identity. Researching the post and verify that the landlord or real estate agent is who they claim to be.

Steven Weisman — author of “50 Ways to Protect Your Identity in a Digital Age,” professor at Bentley University and editor of the blog Scamicide.com — said that this research can be as easy as Googling the property and verifying that it’s listed with legitimate real estate agent or landlord.

“Also, go online to the city or town tax assessor and look up the real name of the owner of the property,” he said. “It is easy and can be an immediate indication that the listing is a scam.” Weisman said that this is a successful technique that he had recently used himself. “In fact, I used this technique to disappoint my son and daughter-in-law who thought they had found a great apartment only to learn from me that it was a scam,” he said. “But at least they didn’t get scammed out of any money.”

Another technique that you can use to verify that the posting is legitimate is by going back to pre-Internet ways of doing business by talking to the agent in person, according to Sali. ““If you have any concern, you’ll have to sacrifice a little of the convenience of the online world for walking over to an office or making a call or doing some of the kind of things that you would have done before everything was done online,” he said.

Both techniques are effective ways to gather information about the posting.

3. Let information flow one way

One of the major ways that these identity thieves steal your information is by requesting all your personal information up-front. They will tell you that they need you to fill out a real estate rental application before you can be considered for the property. Mirzakhanian said this can sometimes be a scam to get your personal information.

“Real estate rental application forms ask for personal information such as name, current and previous address, social security number, driver’s license number and bank account information,” she said. “If this information gets into the wrong hands, then there are many possibilities for misuse. Misuse can include applying for credit cards, generating fake IDs or credit card fraud.”

Don’t reveal any of your personal information up-front, and instead let the landlord or real estate agent give you all the information about the listing, then do your research. If you feel that the posting is legitimate, then pass along your information.

4. Never send money before meeting in-person

This is a crucial step that most people completely forget to do because either they’re really anxious to get the apartment or property, or they’re blinded by the unusually low price and want to put down a deposit before someone else does. Sending money before meeting the real estate agent or landlord in-person can cause you to lose money, but it can also give the identity thieves your bank account information if they ask you to wire the money. Sali said that wiring funds is extremely common with identity thieves.

“Because there are so many people interested, the victim is told that they must wire funds immediately to hold the property,” he said. “When money is wired, it is all but impossible to get back which is why it is a primary choice of scam artists.”

5. Meet in-person and ask questions

Scheduling an appointment to meet in-person at the property — after doing research on the property — can save you from the headache of identity theft. Mirzakhanian said that another way you can avoid being scammed is by using a reputable real estate agent. “Also, always meet in person before sending in information and verify credentials,” she said. “Obtain information about their credentials and ask questions.”

Sali said that it’s also important to look out for red flags indicating that it could be an identity thief. “A few things to look out for are owners who, for whatever reason, are out of the country and unable to meet with you in person or have someone on their behalf meet with you in-person at the property,” he said. “This is a big indication that this could be a scam.”

6. Trust your intuition

This is one of the biggest thing you can do to protect your identity when house hunting — just trust yourself. If you feel that a posting may not be legitimate or you have a funny feeling about a property, then don’t respond to the posting. Instead you can flag it — if that’s an option on the site — or even report it. Mirzakhanian said that you can report online-related crimes to an organization working with the FBI called the Internet Crime Complaint Center. They will investigate the reported posting and determine if it is phony or not. “Use the internet and common sense,” she said. “If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.”

Two arrested in West Covina for identity theft shopping spree

Thursday, May 30th, 2013

A Long Beach man and woman were arrested on Tuesday for stealing the identity of a Los Angeles woman and racking up credit card charges under her name.

Judith Guzman, 34, and George Wusstig, 42, are accused of opening various credit cards under the unidentified woman’s name. They were arrested on Tuesday while shopping at Bert’s Mega Mall, said West Covina police Lt. Tim Doonan. Besides the account at Bert’s, Guzman and Wusstig also opened accounts at Best Buy and Home Depot, Doonan said.

Guzman was arrested for commercial burglary, identity theft, credit card fraud and forgery.

Wusstig was at Bert’s at the time of the arrest shopping with a gift card obtained fraudulently by Guzman,

Doonan said. He was also driving her around to the various stores. The duo’s relationship is unknown.

On May 21, Guzman was approved for a $10,000 credit at Bert’s Mega Mall and spent $9,949 of it on merchandise. Bert’s sells equipment such as motorcycles, boats and dirt bikes and accessories. At Best Buy, she had credit for $1,900 and spent $1,893. The amount she was approved for and spent at Home Depot is currently unknown.

“There is no indication that there’s a breach in security at these stores,” Doonan said.

The day Guzman opened the Bert’s Mega Mall credit card, she purchased $4,500 worth of merchandise which she returned to pick up on Tuesday. She continued to shop around for an

additional $1,000 of items while in the store, he said. Three separate purchases added up to $9,949.

“The name of the person who (the cards) were open under received a fraud alert that credit had been opened in her name and she contacted the store,” Doonan said.

It is unclear how the suspects obtained the victim’s information, he said.

Police recovered an excessive amount of electronic equipment from their car that may have been purchased at Best Buy.

Guzman is being held in lieu of $50,000 and Wusstig in lieu of $20,000. They are both at the Covina Police Jail and are due in Citrus Municipal Court on Thursday.
