Now that college has been back in session for a couple of months (and in some places 3 months), it is usually the time of the year when students are comfortable, well settled into their classes, and looking towards Christmas.

It’s also the time when college students are feeling most comfortable with their new friends and reconnecting with old friends.

Identity Thieves know this.

In fact, in interviews we’ve done with identity thieves, they say that they target people during holiday times, and universities and students in particular, because students tend to be the most distracted around this time of year.

In addition to the holiday hustle and bustle all of us deal with, students are also moving out of the dorms, preparing for tests, and finding jobs for the holiday break.

This leaves college students among the most susceptible to people who would have their information stolen.

That is where Norton has realized that college students need some help.

If you are a college student, Norton has products designed specifically for you.  They also have coupons for college students to save money on all Norton products.

Some of the additional features of products offered by Norton for college students include

  • Monitoring emails and instant messages for any links which could be hazardous to your computer, as well as attachments that could potentially be malicious.
  • Establishing a two-way firewall.  This should prevent hackers (even within a dorm environment) from getting into your PC and stealing your personal information, or even your Facebook and Twitter passwords.
  • Mapping and monitoring of the network you are on.  This will show you all of the devices connected to your dorm or apartment network (if you’ve set up a wireless network), letting you very easily see which uninvited guests are either using your connection or checking in on you when you go online.

If you are a college student, you really need to have some sort of internet security on your computer.

By taking advantage of Norton’s discounts and coupon codes for college students, you can save money and have security and peace of mind during the most stressful time of the year.

Want to Go To Paris? Use Someone Else’s Identity.

Meet the new face of Identity theft. Or at least one of the young faces of Identity theft.
Two apparently white collar, otherwise normal college students (well, one recently graduated) have found themselves in police custody.
Jocelyn Kirsch is (was, before this) a Drexel University student and her boyfriend, Edward Anderton, is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania.
Their alleged crime?
Oh, nothing really.
Just taking the personal information from people in their apartment complex and using it to visit Paris, Hawaii, and do other odds and ends… like have $17,500 in cash (on hand) in their apartment.
I definitely don’t want to laugh at someone else’s misery, but what really amazes me about this, more than anything else, is this part of the article.

The fraud scheme paid for jaunts to Paris, London and Hawaii and a stop at a tony salon for $1,700 worth of hair extensions, police said.
