I dread to think?

Re: Renting & giving out your SSN/DOB, etc

You clearly have zero qualifications to make such a loose and flippant statement, so perhaps you should not do so.

I can't imagine how you got your moderator moniker with such replies.

Well I am actually concerned about that to, but I just didn't mention it in my original post.

I think you are quite naive to believe that.
It can be the other way around you know,

The criminal network has a lot of strands, some of which are those people who look and act legitimate.

Re: Renting & giving out your SSN/DOB, etc

Apologies,
What I wanted to ask is: are our identities at greater risk with a private person than an organization?

Re: Renting & giving out your SSN/DOB, etc

Renting & giving out your SSN/DOB, etc

When we first moved here, I had no SSN nor had my GC arrive yet, but we were still able to rent an apartment, based on my UK ID and my spouse's USA ID.

Re: Who's your VOIP provider?

Please can you provide details of the above, in plain non-techie "bloke down the pub" speak, so I can understand what you have and how you've obtained everything?

Re: A laptop to last me 5 years

As I said before, you have to weigh up the "full cost of ownership".

If you only look at the initial purchase price, you're missing the point and benefit by going Mac.
