Watch an episode of SVU, Law & Order or CSI on TV, and you're bound to hear about doctor-patient confidentiality in hushed, almost reverent terms. Go to a new doctor's office and, amidst all the other paperwork, you'll be asked to sign a form enumerating your federally-mandated medical privacy rights. Call a hospital to check in on a friend and you're likely to hear that those rights prevent them from connecting your call.
So then why is medical identity theft one of the most common forms of identity theft and growing?
It's partially because, like many small businesses, doctor's offices often don't understand best practices when it comes to protecting the information they keep on their patients, and their record-keeping is often based on antiquated forms and methods of documentation that are long past their prime.

We don’t know about you, but we love getting free stuff -- especially on vacation. Most of us don’t spend our hard-earned money on a trip lightly, and there’s nothing worse than showing up at your carefully chosen resort only to get nickel-and-dimed. That’s why, when a resort does the opposite and hands out freebies for things you wouldn’t expect, it isn’t just refreshing -- it can be what elevates your vacation from just OK to out of this world.

Actor Ray Liotta claims in a lawsuit that he's never heard of a skincare company that he alleges is using his face in a "before-and-after" advertising photo.
Liotta alleges Nerium International violates his privacy rights under California law and he accuses the firm of false endorsement and unfair competition under federal law. Liotta seeks compensatory and punitive damages and an injunction against Nerium, according to his lawsuit filed in a Los Angeles federal court this week.
“I’ve never even heard of Nerium, let alone used their products,” Liotta said in a statement after filing the lawsuit. "They can deal with these doctored photos in court.”
Liotta, known for his role in the films "Goodfellas" and "Field of Dreams," accuses Nerium of generating "revenue using a product-based pyramid scheme," his lawsuit states.
He claims Nerium sells its products to "Nerium Partners," sales agents who recruit new partners "in an ever-growing pyramid," the lawsuit states.

Lea Michele's "Louder" **
