    This is an exerpt from an article I read on Yahoo today. Maybe the CRA's will crack down and stop handing out our profiles so easily:


    "Police said Abdullah allegedly breached the bank, brokerage and credit card accounts of tycoons and celebrities such as movie director Spielberg, CNN founder Turner, financier George Soros and Warren Buffet, the fourth richest man in the world and head of Berkshire Hathaway insurance and investment business.

    Other victims included Disney CEO Michael Eisner, star talk show host and author Oprah Winfrey and Viacom CEO Sumner Redstone.

    ``He's the best I ever faced,'' Detective Michael Fabozzi of the NYPD's Computer Investigation and Technology Unit was quoted as saying in the New York Post.

    His colleague, Detective Jahmal Daise, said: ``You rarely run into someone this good.''

    Police alleged that Abdallah duped companies such as TRW, Equifax and Experian into providing detailed credit reports on his rich victims. He then used the confidential information to clone their identities and gain access to their accounts at brokerages such as Goldman Sachs, Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch and Fidelity Investments, officials told the newspaper."
