Checking for Stolen Identities

The site StolenID Search allows you to enter a Social Security number or Credit Card number to see if it has been compromised. This can come in handy for the 'professional tenants' who pretend to be someone else (because they have bad credit, or just dont plan on paying you anyway).

Note that this information is only good for that which is stolen via computer-related scams (e.g. phising, etc.) It does not include stolen identity information from the guy who digs through the restaurant dumpster looking for credit card receipts; unless, that is, he posts that info to the internet in where these type of scammers hang out.
