00:03:37..] ..] >> well, welcome back.
00:03:42Now, during the break, legendary computer hacker, kevin mitnick, set out to find out as much personal information as he could of three of our audience members, christopher, diana and dawn, and guess what, guys?
00:03:53He came up with some .. you hold that, ..
00:03:58Take a look and see how much he was able to find out just with your first and last name.
00:04:03>> A lot.
00:04:04>> Now, kevin, how did you do this?
00:04:06>> I simply went on the internet and accessed a database, uh, that all I need is a credit card number and I simply put in the first and last name in the state of new jersey, and that's how t out, but wait, let me see here.
00:04:17He has your social security number-- that's yours right?
00:04:19>> That's it, yeah.
00:04:20>> What's this right here?
00:04:21Is this your address that you used to live at? >> yeah.
00:04:22>> Don't give it out.
00:04:23>> Correct, yes.
00:04:24>> Is this another address you used to live at? >> yes.
00:04:25>> Kevin, this, this, for a person who's a hacker or fairly decent at being a hacker, they could easily do this, and more.
00:04:32>> You don't have to be a hacker.
00:04:34All this information is already out there on the internet that anybody could get access to.
00:04:39It's already public.
00:04:40>> Now that you have their social security number and these addresses, steve, this is where you come in because I'm the f, I can now set up credit cards in their name, I can set if I roll out five or six addresses, then people think it's really me.
00:04:57>> Steve: Exactly right, and there's a couple of key services that we offer in the solution ONE IS CALLED eRECON WHICH Peruses the 10,000 known black market sites that actually buy and sell this information.
00:05:10So by having this and if this was a true thief, they could go put it on these sites wheresell these on a daily level.
00:05:17>> Now, one of the ways that lifelock helps to protect us is that you put alerts on members' accounts?
00:05:23Ect. >> o.k.
00:05:24>> One of the things we do to help prevent identity theft or fraud is an item or ace called identity alerts, and it when your information is obtained out there and someone that is not you goes to apply for a credit or a non-credit-related application like a cell phone, ..
00:05:46In that regard we are within that process of application.
00:05:50We will see that and then outward notify you through e-mail, postal mail or phone to verify you're applying for this item.
00:06:00>> And you continuously do this.
00:06:02You're monitoring all the time.
00:06:03>> Exactly. so let me give youxample.
00:06:05In the last 90 days lifelock has issued over 118,000 alerts to its member base, of which stopped over 3,000 fraudulent occurrences.
00:06:16>> That's what I'm talking about.
00:06:18[Applause] well, ladies and gentlemen, give it up for steve and kevin.
00:06:23Give it up!
00:06:23..] thank you guys so much.
00:06:26>> Steve: Absolutely.
00:06:27Ou're going to meet a man who thought he had some trouble when he saw $3500 missing from his account, but nothing compared to the night that some people walked up to ..
00:06:41 because they were looking for the wrong version of him.
00:06:45>> This is my identity theft file and it basically started with all the phone calls I made local police, credit card, police report, cadillac dealership ..
00:06:56And all that was even before the trial started.
00:06:59>> Announcer: John healy's identity theft story began with a simple error.
00:07:03Someone had accessed john's checking account and taken a shopping spree in his name.
00:07:08>> Took money out of my account, then went and bought a cadillac in my name.
00:07:11>> Announcer: Months passed and john thought he had finally cleared up the mess when the unthinkable happened.
00:07:16>> John: There w knock on my door one night, I answered the door.
00:07:19Two guys there told me they had a warrant for my arrest.
00:07:23>> Announcer: Unbeknownst to john, the thief had bailed out a buddy from jail with john's identity.
00:07:28>> I had young daughters, you know, staying with me, and when the bail bondsman and bounty hunter showed up, uh, they stopped staying with me.
00:07:35It was just too much.
00:07:36You never knew what was gonna happen next.
00:07:38>> Announcer: And what happened next would change john's life forever.
00:07:43>> It hit the local paper, the ..
00:07:46All four local papers that I was going on trial for killing a cop.
00:07:50>> Montel: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome john healy to the show.
00:07:53[Cheering and applause] again, to help us out, please of lifelock, mr. todd davis.
00:08:00This guy had more than 20 aliases, he was, you know, a career criminal still able to do this.
00:08:07>> Yeah, and while the story, thank goodness, we don't typically hear about the bail bondsman beating on the door, but we do hear about these career criminals, that we've madey.
00:08:17>> Do we ever find out how this started?
00:08:32Yo actlly, it was a benefits package from my company that had my birth date, social security ..
00:08:37>> Sitting on your desk.
00:08:38>> Just sitting there, right next to where they were working.
00:08:41.. how long after they left did you realize that that package wasn't there?
00:08:46.. a while, 'cause, you know, I wasn't, you know, paying that much attention to it, and I looked for it a couple of times, just thinking i had misplaced it, and then when all of this happened, I kind of put two and two together.
00:09:00..
00:09:01>> That's how they do it, right, todd?
00:09:04>> Well, right, and think about the person that we're talking about committing some of these crimes isn't necessarily the handyman.
00:09:09This is the person who may not consider going down to the local bank and committing a robbery using a gun.
00:09:17But then how easy is it when it's just a little too tempting.
00:09:20"I'm here doing this work, I'm ..
00:09:23All I need to do is I'm going to sell it to the bad guys, I'm not go I'm just going to turn it into a little money 'cause there's people who will buy that information," and then look at the consequences.
00:09:33>> Well, I'm gonna tell ya, you know, one of the things that todd had agreed to do already, you know you're going to be getting lifelock for a full .. [applause] everyone in the audience is getting lifelock for a full year!
