I recall several threads started by guys that were ID theft victims using various brokers. Do brokers in general and IB specifically (my broker) do anything to prevent this? For example, does TWS have security measures that prevents key logging programs and other spyware from collecting sensitive ID information? Also, would you ever trade from a public library or other cyber cafe type of public space? This issue is scary considering ID theft is so easy to do and easy to get away with - a very low risk - high reward crime. In all the ID theft related threads created, the brokers simply blamed the customers.
