"Fascinating... a regular field manual... meticulously researched and very entertaining." --G. Gordon Liddy
A thoroughly revised and updated edition of the essential guide to preserving your personal security
From cyberspace to crawl spaces, new innovations in information gathering have left the private life of the average person open to scrutiny, and worse, exploitation. In this thoroughly updated third edition of his immensely popular guide How to Be Invisible, J.J. Luna shows you how to protect your home address, hide your ownership of vehicles and real estate, use pagers with dumbphones, switch to low-profile banking and invisible money transfers, use alternate signatures, and how to secretly run a home-based business.
J.J. Luna is an expert and highly trained security consultant with years of experience protecting himself, his family, and his clients. Using real life stories and his own consulting experience, J.J. Luna divulges legal methods to attain the privacy you crave and deserve, whether you want to shield yourself from casual scrutiny or take your life savings with you and disappear without a trace. Whatever your needs, Luna reveals the shocking secrets that private detectives and other seekers of personal information use to uncover information and then shows how to make a serious commitment to safeguarding yourself.
There is a prevailing sense in our society that true privacy is a thing of the past. In a world where privacy concerns that only continue to grow in magnitude, How to Be Invisible, Third Edition is a critical antidote to the spread of new and more efficient ways of undermining our personal security.
Privacy is a commonly-lamented casualty of the Information Age and of the world's changing climate--but that doesn't mean you have to stand for it. This new edition of J. J. Luna's classic manual contains step-by-step advice on building and maintaining your personal security, including brand new chapters on:

- The secrets of international privacy, and much more!

The cop said he’d stopped me because I made a left turn into a far lane, and for not wearing a seatbelt. He took my license, walked back to his patrol car, and checked both the DL and the plates. (My last ticket had been about twelve years ago, for speeding.) When he returned, he made no mention of the LLC, nor its foreign address. Cop: Do you live here in [State A] now? (Referring to the DL

In Switzerland, he purchased 250,000 raw diamonds, weighing nearly four pounds. (Raw diamonds are easy to sell and cannot be traced.) At this point, it appeared that Rifkin had pulled off the perfect crime. No one at Security Pacific even knew the money was gone! Then he returned to the United States. Some say he had an ego problem, and couldn’t help showing
warning. What if—unknown to you—a PI has tracked you down because a lawyer is about to file a frivolous lawsuit? Or a stalker is in town, determined to do you harm? Or Homeland Security, acting on a false tip, plans to send in a SWAT team as soon as they locate your true home address? Hopefully, nothing similar will ever happen to you, just as you may never have an accident with your car or a fire in your home. But don’t you sleep better, knowing you have insurance?

that the woman was obviously screaming at the man to do something, and the “something” turned out to be a trip over to see me. Assuming he wanted some help, I lowered my window halfway as he came around my side, and said hello. “Your cart hit my car!” “Excuse me? We didn’t have a cart.” “Yes you did, and we saw it come from here.” At least he didn’t weigh more than 140, and my friend Carl is an ex-wrestler, so this time I was just amused, not scared. “I wrote down your license number,” the
Landlords surreptitiously enter apartments more often than you might think—in fact, it once happened to me. That was fifty-six years ago, but there were such serious consequences that I haven’t forgotten it yet. Anthony Herbert, in his book Complete Security Handbook, has this to say in the section about locks: Change them without the management’s knowledge. (Remove the cylinder, take it to a locksmith, and get combination changed.) If the manager or janitor later complains, ask why he was
