Guess Who’s Identity Was Stolen?

by Ron Haynes

You’d think the Chairman of the Federal Reserve would be the last person to fall victim to identity thieves, but according to Newsweek, Ben Bernanke, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank, fell victim to identity theft when his wife’s purse was stolen from the back of a chair in Starbucks.

Chairman Bernanke, you need to get Equifax Credit Watch Gold 3-in-1! It’s what I use to insure that my identity is protected from additional identity theft. I wish I had this kind of protection before an identity thief decided to turn my world upside down and I bet Mr. Bernanke does too!

Yes, I really do use this service. I know a lot of other bloggers discount identity theft protection, but having had my identity stolen, it’s very cheap peace of mind for me.
