A few months ago my wife and I moved about 1.2 miles from a rented condo into a house of our own. We stayed in the same zip code, so we figured moving our utilities to our new address would be simple and straightforward. Not surprisingly, the only place we ran into problems was with Comcast. After we got our service moved, our bill went up 50%! Obviously, this was not right, so we made a few phone calls.
If you have an account with Zappos, the popular online shoe and clothing retailer, you were one of 24 million people exposed in last week’s hacker attack on the site. If you were a victim, it is important for you to take steps to protect yourself right away. If you were not, this should act as a reminder to stay vigilant and work to protect yourself against identity theft online.
