Book Provides Canadians Total shield from the Terror of ID Theft

Essential Tips to Immune Your Financial Peace

Attention: Assignment Editor, Books Editor, Business/Financial Editor, Education Editor, News Editor CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 24, 2007) - The threat of identity theft has become the number one hazard to our financial security today. Just between the years 2004 and 2005, there were 23,169 reported Canadians who were victims of identity theft with a total loss of $27,537,170.48. For most Canadians, identity theft brings to mind computer hackers who somehow hack into our computers for our personal information. Although hackers can be some of the most dangerous of identity thieves, we must be aware of other forms of identity theft.

Financial coach and speaker, Douglas U. Idugboe, founder of Christsmart™ Financial Network and Quicksuccess™ Training, advises Canadians to be proactive in building a strong wall around their personal information. He dedicates an entire chapter to identity theft in his book Credit Miracle for Canadians: How to Build, Repair, and Improve Your Credit, Get out of Debt, Make Banks Beg to Lend You Money, and Protect Yourself from Identity Theft!, scheduled to be in bookstores nationwide and online at amazon.ca and chapters.ca on February 1, 2007. He says the terror of identity theft can be transformed into an oasis of financial and personal security simply by monitoring your credit report at least once or twice every year, shredding all unwanted credit card receipts and documents that go into the trash, installing and running spy ware and antivirus protection in your computer, performing a Secure Hard disk Eraser before selling or giving away your old computers, buying only from trusted websites, using a low limit credit card to make purchase online, never giving out your Social Insurance Number or your date of birth to an undeserving individual, company or agency, always securing your PIN and watching out for cameras above sales points when using debit cards and if you suspect any foul play, calling up the credit reporting agencies to place a fraud alert on your credit files.
