From cyberspace to crawl spaces, innovations in information gathering have left private lives open to scrutiny and exploitation. In this thoroughly revised update, J.J. Luna shows how to protect yourself from information predators by securing your: vehicle and real estate ownership, bank accounts, business dealings, computer files, home address, and more. Luna shows how to achieve the privacy you crave and deserve, whether to shield yourself from casual scrutiny or take your life savings with you and disappear without a trace. Luna reveals the shocking secrets that private detectives and other personal information seekers use, and then shows how to make a serious commitment to safeguarding yourself.There is a prevailing sense in our society that true privacy is a thing of the past. Filled with vivid real life stories, this book is an antidote to privacy concerns that only continue to grow as ever more efficient ways of undermining our personal security are made available. Privacy is a commonly-lamented casualty of the Information Age and of the world's changing climate-but that doesn't mean you have to stand for it. About the Author J. J. (Jack) Luna sold his outdoor advertising business in the Upper Midwest in 1959 and moved with his wife and small children to Spain's Canary Islands (off the coast of West Africa). Outwardly, he worked as a professional writer and photographer. Secretly, however, he dodged the Spanish Secret Police while working underground in an activity that was at that time illegal under the dictatorship of Generalissimo Francisco Franco. In 1970 Franco, yielding to intense pressure from the western world, moderated Spain's laws. Luna was now free to come in from the cold. By that time, however, privacy had become an ingrained habit. In the years that followed he started up various low-profile home-based businesses, built them up and then sold them. He is currently an international consultant specializing in personal privacy and security.
