Wells Fargo uses upside-down name tags to draw attention to identity theft
Last week, at Wells Fargo, I noticed that clerks were wearing their name tags upside down. They said that this was a gimmick to draw attention to identity theft protection plans.
I got around to doing the free annual credit report Friday, and found no problems. All three bureaus ask multiple choice questions about the distant past in doing identity verification. TransUnion actually ask the trade name of my “publishing company” back in early 2000 that carried my first “Do Ask, Do Tell” book and my “Our Fundamental Rights” book, as a multiple choice question. The answer was “High Productivity Publishing.”
