PSA

One of our customers just called in to report that he had gotten a suspicious e-mail -- and later, phone call -- telling him that his credit card had gone over limit (he got suspicious and checked with his bank directly; no such thing had happened).

As an ISP, we can't directly help with cases of potential identity theft, but I did point him to the Web site www.ftc.gov/freereports -- which tells American citizens how they can obtain a free, no-strings-attached credit report (up to three times every 12 months, once per credit reporting firm) under federal law. It's a good reminder for my friends, too.
