Identity Theft via Social Media

For the past several years, my Mom, Barbara Huston, has been marketing pre-paid legal policies and identity theft protection and restoration plans. She is very passionate about what she does and I have really enjoyed watching the transformations that she has been making since she entered the business.

Imagine my surprise when my entire Twitter feed was full of information about an East Coast earthquake! It seemed hard for me to imagine, even though I have known my entire life that New Jersey rests on a fairly large fault. This piece of my road trip started in California.
