    Desperate times bring desperate actions. Everyone must be vigilant in protecting both their identity and their belongings. No person or place is immune. This is a wake-up call to guard your information carefully.
    I had a horrifying experience four years ago when my credit card was duplicated by a local restaurant when I submitted my card for payment. Over $5000 in charges was racked up before I noticed it. Luckily it was protected by the credit card company! We always think it won’t happen to us!
