Dude!

Why bring Little Billy into it?

Hasn't he suffered enough?

Well... actually - considering what he did to Kevin, then Julia, then Kevin again... no.

Must have been the Russians.

So much more intellectual and financial resources than these goddamn American kids who've never advanced from phone-freaking Nixon.

Silvana's identity theft nightmare started in such a simple way - she left her mobile phone behind at a store in a case containing her credit card and driver's licence.

The solution to this is obvious and has much wider application.

Put the onus on banks and other organisations to check that they're dealing with the actual person (and that person is mentally fit/competent to borrow money) before granting any form of loan - and leave them legally defenceless if they make a mistake.

It's not just loans, it's also online shopping.

Online shopping has very little or no interest in leading people into debt. They probably stand to lose in nearly all such cases.

Whereas money-lenders, much better protected in law, have every incentive to do so.

A problem evident in Magna Carta (where money-lenders are labelled racially).
