Could being mimicked overseas be a problem? Not really that likely, it seems

CNBC has some basic advice on how to protect yourself from bank account drainings and wire fraud, which may be more likely when you travel a lot.

I’ve wondered about the idea as I get phishing emails claiming I have made various purchases in third world countries. 

But frequent checking of all your accounts at home (or even when traveling domestically) would seem to make it impossible for anyone to copy you abroad. 

Yet I have wondered what would be the consequences if you for some reason then traveled to one of those countries.
Here is a resource on what to do if your passport number is breached (from the Identity Theft Resource Center).
