I read the thread on identity theft with interest. Some of the exploits discussed by FS has also resulted in service personnels personal details ending up in terrorist intelligence files. Conversely I and a few others have been ex directory and off the electoral rolls for a number of years. Domestic bills are in maiden names etc. The consequence of this is difficulty in getting new credit arrangements, loans & cards. Has anyone : 1. Had similar experiences? 2. Found a solution or compromise that allows you to retain some degree of domestic anonymity? At least we don't get our identity stolen. My wife's ex bill, it does happen. As Gerry Adams said " they have'nt gone away you know" and I sense that there may me some new challenges ahead?
