Identity Theft?: No Bl@@dy Wonder

#1
Been on my mind for a long time, but I was reminded of how sloppy, people are; wiith our personal details, today.

If our data is being incompetently looked after and competently lost, by some apparently dimwitted yokels that shouldn't be given a bl@dy paper round, then ... why is this ? Why?...

Not content with losing our private sensitive details in the post, or en-route , or from car boots, or on laptops left on public transport, they even bl@@dy well shout out our names, in public places. Don't they? Well, not just our names... And apart from intransigence, there's really no excuse. At all.

It would appear that some people, by and large, though not all, won't have the gumption, or the wherewithall, to look after our sensitive, personal data without being kicked first up the backside. Strange, but true.

Some people do whatever they can, whatever is necessary, to give away our private and sensitive details, to the "burglar in the room. "

My point is simply this: If we visit a surgery, an office, any Public buildings, an NHS place, indeed anywhere : STOP BL@@DY WELL SHOUTING OUR NAMES OUT AND STOP BL@@DY WELL ASKING OUT LOUD FOR OUR PERSONAL DETAILS SO THAT EVERY ONE CAN HEAR THEM !!!

Use your brains and get a system, a ticket system, anything, but please....just for once use your loaf eh? NO: you're not justified. And NO you're not always right. NO you don't have more rights than us just because you're behind a glass screen.

Thank you.

Old joke -might be relevant. If I haven't totally missed the point of that rant.


An old soldier walked into a crowded doctor's waiting room. As he approached the desk, the receptionist said, "Yes sir, what are you seeing the doctor for today?"

"There's something wrong with my c0ck," he replied.

The receptionist became irritated and said, "You shouldn't come into a crowded doctor's room and say things like that."

"Why not? You asked me what was wrong and I told you," he said.

The receptionist replied, "You've obviously caused some embarrassment in this room full of people. You should have said there is something wrong with your ear or something and then discussed the problem further with the doctor in private."

The man replied, "You shouldn't ask people things in a room full of others, if the answer could embarrass anyone."

The man walked out, waited several minutes and then re-entered.

The receptionist smiled smugly and asked, "Yes?"

"There's something wrong with my ear," he stated.

The receptionist nodded approvingly and smiled, knowing he had taken her advice. "And what is wrong with your ear, sir?"

I can't p1ss out of it," the man replied.

Missed the point, have we? Do you lot all work in public buildings then?

So, if you don't mind names, dates of birth, addresses and the like, called out in public, then you won't mind someone noting them down. Will you.
And you won't mind someone using your personal details, will you?

Is it really too much to ask, that public places and clerks take just a little bit of care, with our personal details, in public? Some of us do care, and we do object to public broadcasts of our details.

Mind you, one can see here, what we are up against....

1. How often is your date of birth or address 'called out' in public?
2. How do you realistically suggest staff at a surgery/office/public building communicate with you?

I can see the point you're making, but there are far more important things in life.

I remember being told once that in an STD clinic, patients are "encouraged" to use a false name, resulting in the receptionist having to call out several times a day "Tony Blair" for the next patient...

Reminds me (pulls up sandbag) of the tricks played on student nurses in A&E, sending them out into reception to call Hugh Jarce, Mike Hunt, etc

Anyway, what's your point, there are hundreds of people with the same name as yours I bet (just try googling it)...

Just tried it. There are 4, one in Nebraska, one a kick-ass martial artist in Hawaii, one in Ia (Idaho? Iowa?) and a SSgt in the air national guard, location unspecified.

Using 192.com there are three people on the current electoral roll with my name (including me) and neither of the other two share my middle initial.

I assume, Walter, that you have not heard of the Doppelganger fraud ?

This involves lending identity out to several associates at the same time.

They sign on the dole in their own name and work in the name of the identity lender who also works and receives a percentage of the dole claims.

say a security company works a dopplegang. It might book a pensioner on site for seven 12 hour night shifts. In fact the pensioner might not work at all.

The customer is well happy because the villains in the area are sh-t scared to break in to the company sites as they know there is no way the guards will phone police, matters will be dealt with on an extracurricular basis.

The Police are happy as they claim the credit for the crime reduction in the area.

The pensioner is happy as he gains a living income.

The dopplegangers are happy as are their families.

It is merely grant aid to industry in another form.

But say someone was using an ID without giving a percentage. That would be bad news alright. Bang out of order. ID Thief. Bastard.
