Identity theft does happen

You know, I’ll be honest, I always thought ID theft was a media hype

“fastest growing crime”
“Billions stolen in next year”
bla bla

There has been an attempted ID theft in my block of flats.

The couple who moved in upstairs have been changing their address on things to here and post is being opened or dis-appearing and the police are aware that someone in this area has been attempting to steal peoples details.

People keep leaving the front door on the latch, and being on the main road… I’d dismissed the missing post as opportunist. (anything important that gets sent to me, goes to my PO Box anyway)

I’m going to be carefully shredding everything from now on… dread to think how easy it’d be to fleece me for 000’s… hahaha, I wish…

Harsh times 🙁

Although… if someone stole my identity, I’m alright… got a few spares! 😀
