If you are ever at the point in life where you enter into the process of insolvency then there are considerations to keep in mind that you would never consider if you are keeping privacy as a goal amongst friends, bosses, colleagues. You should find out who the best regulated companies are and know that for yourself really well. Nationally accredited companies which will get a higher rating with Revenue Canada if you can possibly get their recommendation or even from an honest banking official if possible could save you from many issues later on.
Private consultants that work from home or do most of their networking in small groups in public places should be avoided. You should also not use notary publics which use methods like that or you receive a recommendation for in a bar. Insolvency does sometimes become known among the wrong crowds which also can network very well if you are not advised on what can be done with your personal information. Your personal information can be used very well by people you may never meet and you should possibly have your taxes done and approved by Revenue Canada before you begin your insolvency.
If you are isolated or in the wrong crowd and possibly not by choice than you may wish to have some of your files kept with a trusted friend. You may wish to make sure you are safe online which can be hard to do if your a typical Canadian and you’re in this process. Bankruptcy information is possibly publicly available which you may not be aware of and it can be used for identity theft purposes of various kinds if you are isolated by distance or networking such as job change etc. You must use the best services possible and make sure for yourself that there isn’t a conflict of interest on their part as well or if it doesn’t feel right for whatever reason. Doing your taxes first beforehand and having your own Revenue Canada contact before you begin could be a good safety factor for you to safeguard yourself from identity theft networking groups.
My best possible recommendations to not be targeted by identity thieves is to check your credit profile with Equifax once in a while like every six months keep your tax information up-to-date *even if your behind in payments* use nationally placed banks like CIBC or Scotiabank, TD, BMO etc. Credit unions could be good too though banks which don’t have their own bank machines in too many places may not be the best choice for good service. Keep up to date on topics of finance or take a simple course or two in tax preparation or personal safety if you are isolated and seem to be taking on too many issues.
Before entering into the insolvency process you must be aware for yourself how to identify good advice. You should know the different offerings such as consolidation or proposals etc. You must also be aware of questions which you may not know if they are too intrusive or not for identity theft purposes. If you find you are being led into an agreement which will cause you to scrimp and save possibly with no end in sight then you are in the wrong agreement for sure. If you are in a nicer office where you feel safe, comfortable, respected then listen to the advice offered and if it is a good option and you are not discussing too many topics you really are most definitely safe. If it works for you over a process where it seems like you can still accomplish a list of goals and during the process of your insolvency you don’t find your life shrinking or becoming unmanageable for no reasons caused by you than you made a wise choice.
Make sure that if you get to the point where you no longer need to keep in touch with Revenue Canada during the process you feel secure and happy about surrounding situations. If you have experienced a career change with training etc. and you are in the process of many things it can look good to identity thieves where persons criminally connected can take over an identity to get their good start in life if they have some of the skills to be you. Identification gangs network without the help of MLA’s MP’s or political help from the Conservative Party, Liberal Party, or NDP. You can face a lot of scrutiny or blackmail possibly with intrusive new friends if you have things such as security licencing firearms training clean or pretty good criminal history or political standing. If you have an online identity which could be good for you to simply move again or relocate for some other groups purpose such as a US bank account or you have had a student status in the US or good border crossing potential than just be advised that you use good insolvency experts and long time trusted friends do know where you are.
