A Perfect IN for Identity Theft…

by Raylene on November 29, 2008 · 0 comments

None of this is my real information.  I saw this the other day and thought it was really cute… at first.

1. Your SPY name (middle name and current street name): Sweet Tulip

2. Your MOVIE STAR name (grandmother on your dad’s side and your favourite candy): Jane Aero

3. Your RAP name (first initial of first name and first three or four letters of your last name): B-Mum

4. Your GAMER TAG (a favourite colour, a favourite animal): Purple Unicorn

5. Your SOAP OPERA name (middle name, and city you were born in): Sweet Kalamazoo

6. Your STAR WARS name (first three letters of your last name, last three letters of mother’s maiden name, first three letters of your pet’s name): Mummaifid

7. Your JEDI name (middle name spelled backwards, your mom’s maiden name spelled backwards): Teews Nediam

8. Your ROCK STAR name (first pet’s name, the street you grew up on): Candy Clearbrook

9. Your SUPERHERO name: (“The”, your favourite colour and the automobile your dad drives): The Purple Ram

10. Your ACTION HERO name (first name of the main character in the last film you watched, last food you ate): Jack Cupcake
Those names are pretty funny – they were even funnier when I used my REAL information.

Even if you don’t know me, these are the things you can now figure out about me from this list:

First Initial: B
Middle Name: Sweet
First 3 letters of last name: Mum
Mother’s maiden name: Maiden
Paternal grandmother’s first name: Jane
Current Street: Tulip
City born in: Kalamazoo
Pet’s name (first 3 letters): Fid
First pet’s name: Candy
The street I grew up on: Clearbrook
My favorite color: purple
My favorite candy: Aero
One of my favorite animals: unicorn
The vehicle my dad drives: a (Dodge) Ram

Those look like the answers to the security questions I have on many of my bank and credit card accounts (and other places…).

If you personally know me, you likely know my first name, where I currently live, and maybe even where I grew up.  Even more complete information!

Identity TheftI got this on e-mail originally, with the instructions to change all the answers with my own information, and then forward my answers on to my friends.  I now know all that information about the friend who sent it to me (the info is safe with me!).  But what looks like a cute little fun ‘game’ can end up forwarding very useful information OUT THERE into cyberspace.

If you get one of these, or one like it, please don’t forward it, or post it on your blog/myspace/facebook/etc., with your real answers in it.  You might fill it out and see what kind of funny answers you get, but don’t share it.

Also, be wary of some of the other fun “About Me” e-mail forwards that you get from time to time.  Many of them really are just for fun, and contain nothing more than goofy information – but take a second look before you hit the send button to be sure you aren’t passing along important security information.

It’s all fun and games, until somebody’s identity get’s stolen.  Then it’s just plain criminal!
