I just received an email from Change.org thanking me for online signing a political petition – a petition I know nothing about and did not sign.
Like everything in the online world, low end identify theft is rampant. Stealing people’s identities for online petitions is just another propaganda tool. All it takes is a name and an email address.
Recently, the FCC received millions of comments in regards to “net neutrality”. Subsequently, researchers identified hundreds of thousands of comments that were generated by robots using stolen identify information. The Internet is not turning out the way people expected it to turn out.
