It used to be that identity theft meant that thieves got into your trash and found your bank statement. Paper shredders became popular, then shredders that cut both ways came on the scene.
That doesn't seem to help much any more.

I am already thinking ahead about gifts for Hannukah. This is in part because since LO's birthday in late August, the child has been asking if any and every box that comes into our house is a present for him.
