Desperation + Opportunity = Identity Theft
The solution to the simple formula of a successful identity theft that made so many lives complicated only takes three things to know: what kind desperation moves people to commit identity theft, what are the opportunities that serve as openings for identity theft that these people see, and what id theft is really about. This article is intended to create a simpler description to this formula and with that, a better approach to identity theft.
People nowadays are too hooked with the rapid increase of financial status of the community, thinking that they should also go hand in hand with the flow created by money. However, not everyone can really accomplish such task because of some reasons like lack of resources, social battles against the people who will also do the same just to put a good label on their names, and even the existence of little luck in their lives that manifests itself through little chances of getting the things they badly want and greedily need.
Having this in mind, certain desperation moves people to create a new society where money is the prime factor that makes it revolve. It is then the creation of a force so strong it can defy the odds bounded by cultures and morality. People are now becoming more and more into instincts rather than in the rational way of thinking, basically acting base on impulses that this society releases day after day of pure complexity.
People then see opportunities with their blinded eyes. They see the trust of people as a mere thing to play with to get the things they deem necessary for them. They see the garbage as a gate for information and from there, a gate for money. They see the unexpected times as the best times to strike. They see things in a different way now. They carry that desperation and when it is then mixed with the opportunity, the clash begins.
They see salvation in the other side of the coin. This side may give the best chance for that moment but that moment will not forever last. Time will come when all the crimes in the world will once again perish together with the people that created them. Among these crimes, identity theft becomes one of the booming, making it one of the top crimes for today.
Identity theft is a specialized term for a new breed of stealing and stealers. It is the illegal way of using the information of other people without them being informed at once. Since it is illegal, it happens underground, making it more difficult to notice and even to trace once the victim is already notified.
The solution to this is very simple as well, we just have to learn to protect ourselves and fight against the odds that they created. We must know where and when, why and how to act towards other people because they may have that desperation and we may give them the opportunity for them to commit identity theft against our will and even knowledge.
