We frequently hear about identity theft, a growing problem since the onset of the Age of Technology. But what happens? How do the affects of identity theft change the lives of victims in its wake? My guest, Angela, knows and has written a book about it. Angela writes:

This book is dedicated to the many victims of identity theft that was committed through their personal computer in the privacy of their own home! The purpose of writing this book is to help inform the average person who owns a personal computer how to protect oneself from identity theft. By exposing some of the dangers and risks involved with owning such an item, perhaps people could avoid going through a similar experience. The experiences documented in this book are meant to help instruct people about the use of computers. By understanding how they operate, it will help people see what they are capable of. Hopefully, people will be better equipped to protect their financial data as well as their personal lives.

Although many people have good intentions with the use of their computers, there are some out there, who have bad thoughts and intentions. In fact, a hacker can turn a person’s computer into a weapon without them knowing. In some cases, it could look like the victim committed the crime when in fact they had no knowledge of the crime that was being committed.
