Was recently reading that something like 98% of Americans are at risk for identity theft because of all the data breaches.
Criminals filing fake tax returns seems to be what’s hot now.
Honestly, it’s something I never even thought criminals would think of.
Yet another reason to never give the IRS an interest-free loan for the year and then file for a refund.
Of course, if you already jack your withholding allowances up to the maximum, or make minimum estimated tax payments, it’s a non-issue.
People are about to find out why those financial aggregation sites are not all they’re cracked up to be.
I went to some famous company’s webzone and saw a suggestion to monitor your finances using one of the major fintech financial aggregators.
You know the ones I’m talking about.
You hand over your login credentials for your bank and credit cards and whatnot and it aggregates all your financial data.
If hackers have a person’s SSN, and can file a fake tax return, methinx the next-to-worst move one could make it handing over login creds to a third party (which nulls and voids fraud liability protection with all major banks and credit unions).
Anywho, assuming you’ve taken the proper precautions to protect yourself from the Irwin R Schysters of the world… and also these hackers, you’ll need a place to stash your cash.
You can put it in a bank, of course.
Or, you can cook with fire using one of my custom high cash value life insurance policies.
