Expect the unexpected, but the appalling reality is, that the world we live in today there are “Five Things We Can Not Get A Preventative Vaccination For Fraud Scams Being Hacked By Hackers That Leads To Identity Theft.” Everyday we either read about, hear about it, or in many cases, have it happen to us. Once again that time of year is here, tax time.

The same applies to the security systems we have installed, on our computers, smart phones, credit card data bases, and I would be remiss, the latest information storage applications, the infamous “cloud.” Even though these “hackers” don’t really wear gloves while the perform the “theft” of our information, in many if not all cases they do leave finger prints behind, these prints are the digital kind,
“5Things We Can Not Get A Preventative Vaccination For Fraud Scams Being Hacked By Hackers That Leads To Identity Theft.” Comes from my own personal experience, all 5 have happened to me, and I would be willing to wager, that, at least one or two, or maybe all 5, have happened to you, or your company, business.
What the does that word really mean? Before the advent of the web when something got “hacked” it was usually associated with something like this. To cut or chop with repeated and irregular blows: “hacked” down the saplings.
