qorkfiend: Why would being paid his normal salary "open his finances up to public scrutiny"
willwall: Fireproof: willwall: This is like claiming that you can withdrawal from my account because you know where the nearest branch is. A routing number is not personally identifying information. It's the bank's electronic address and is on the check of every single person who banks there.It astounds me that as the richest nation on earth Americans are so dumb about how basic finances work.Uh, don't checks also have the account number on them?Sure but it's not the same one for every person who banks there. In all honesty there's very little you can do to protect yourself from a determined fraudster. Your account and routing number are on every check. Your card numbers can be read, either physically, or by a scanner everytime you use it. The CVV number (on the back) is even easy to get. The main protection is insurance/liability protection that protects you from being responsible and electronic monitoring that uses machine learning to determine if the purchase matches your established profile.

evilsofa: PSA: If you haven't created an account at your state's government site that would be linked to unemployment benefits in some manner, or haven't linked your state's unemployment service to your existing state account, you should do so now to prevent fraud, because the identity thieves are hitting them hard. You should do this even if you are still employed and not collecting unemployment to prevent fraudulent accounts from being made based on your Social Security Number.
