Defunding ISIS with the help of Kroll

The Islamic State raises millions of dollars a week from "taxation" and outright extortion of businesses and local government and civilian workers, according to Howard Shatz, a senior economist at the Rand Corp.

U.S. officials are seeking to track down the financial footprints of the terrorist group. Coalition forces will step up military strikes to turn back territorial gains by ISIS.

"It's a matter of developing the names of the individuals who control these accounts and working your way back through
there," Kroll Associates Chairman Dan Karson told CNBC. "Once you have the control of the account and the cooperation of the exchange, or the control of the network, then you can work your way back and find out who these people are who are contributing to the network itself."

Child identity theft

The Bureau of Justice Statistics announced that 17.6 million U.S. residents were victims of identity theft in 2014. The Identity Theft and Restoration Center Augusta, An Identity Theft service organization in Augusta,Ga that helps victims, reported a 300 percent rise in calls during 2014 period related to child identity theft.

Child identity theft can go on for years before being detected. It's also extremely common.By looking ahead you can minimize the chances of your childrens identity will be impacted.
When enrolling your children for school, students and parents expose a number of personal documents with school administrators, from medical records to social Security numbers and residential addresses. When sharing this information, it's important that certain measures are taken to ensure that student identity is protected.

When your child is old enough to understand, sit them down with you and teach them how to read the credit report and teach them why a good credit score is important for the future.

1.Keep your children's personal information in a safe location.
  Carrying around your children's Social Security cards, birth certificates or passports is never a
  wise idea. It's better to store them in a safe and locked place at home, and take them out only
  when needed.

2.Don't share your childs Social Security numbers with everyone.The child's social security number
  Should only be used when necessary.When asked to provide your child's Social Security
  number,inquire as to why it's needed and what policies are in place to ensure that it is

3.Train your children to recognize identity theft.Parents should inform children about the risks
  involved, and educate them on how to protect personal information.

The Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), schools are required to notify parents and guardians about their school-directory policy. Parents and guardians should be informed about any third parties that the information is sold to, allowing you to opt out from the release of such information.

Young children can be victims of identify theft.Even very young children are at risk.
One reason is because most kids have squeaky clean credit ratings. They have probably never taken out credit, which means they have never been late with a payment. Another is that the identify thieves know that the crime can go undetected for many years. Most people periodically check their credit report or take out loans or credit cards or rental applications, and if their ID has been stolen, they will probably find out. A child may not find out until he or she applies for a student loan or a credit card, which usually doesn't happen till they're nearly 18.

Protecting Your Military ID Card and Your Credit Card from Electronic Pick Pocket.

RFID Skimming is a form of digital theft, which enables information from RFID-based credit, debit and ID cards to be read and duplicated.

It can be used as a form of credit card and identity theft and works by covertly reading RFID chips from a distance using a device which downloads the card information.

The stolen information can then be written to a new blank card, which operates just like the original card. It makes no difference if the original data is encrypted or not.

If your credit card does not have an EMV chip, but does have RFID, you have a valid concern.Your bank should issue you a card with RFID or one with an EMV chip.

The idea of RFID in a credit cards is a ridiculous idea.The data can be intercepted much easier than stealing the card itself.At least you have the advantage of knowing when your card is stolen.In a walk-by scan you have no way of knowing until you begin to notice transactions that you didn't authorize in your account statements... And you have to be looking for those to find them a lot of times.
