Have you ever experienced identity theft? I work with these cases all the time at work, and it's quite pervasive and a pain in the butt to remedy. So, I want to know how you prevent identity theft from happening to you. If you have been a victim of it, what was your experience like? Did you ever win your money back?

The cross-cut shredder is your friend.

Been the victim twice.
I think Citibank sucks in that regard.
In one case, they got a hold of a credit card, and started buying shit around the bay area.
To protect myself, I have nothing on my computer, credit card wise. No real usable account information. No passwords saved, etc.
All my online accounts are written down, instead.

Used the same tactic as above. Paper ware is your best friend.
