Your information and I.D. gets harvested from a major hack from someplace you do business with, how much can anyone really take from you?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26821points) September 26th, 2016

Allegedly Yahoo was hacked big time (about two years ago?) and it was believed millions had their personal information harvested by the hacker. Though it was believed to be state sponsored from another nation, if it were mere thieves, etc. from the nation you reside, what would they get from you? Could they cripple you financially?

Currently, about $3.78. But my bank is awesome about reversing unauthorised purchases.

Ha. Just as I finished answering this, I got an email from my bank that my account was overdrawn. A TV service that I’d signed up for a free trial of charged me $22.

One phone call to the TV service and the charge is reversed. Love my bank.

I have enough money to live comfortably for the rest of my life, if I die by next Thursday.

They can jack up my credit card and take the $31 in life savings.

Nothing.
They would find nothing.
Not sure if that is good or bad.

I’m already crippled financially. They can have my bad credit.

I’m riding the struggle bus too. I don’t think I have anything worth hacking. I think after the time spent hacking me , the hacker took the loss. The hackers time would be better spent on something else.
