National Identity Fraud Prevention Week
Normally I'm not a fan of press releases dressed up as news stories. You know the type - "163% of Irish adults are Vitamin X deficient" (survey sponsored by manufacturers of Vitamin X). But I had to make an exception for this story on National Identity Fraud Prevention Week as the sponsors Fellowes (who unsurprisingly make shredders) have produced a very good site with tips on identity fraud, phishing and more. While I'm sure the savvy readers of this blog wouldn't dream of replying to that plausible looking email from PayPal, there are more subtle risks which are pointed out in an accessible way. Recommended.
