Most Identity Theft occurs NOT from your on-line transactions, but rather from locally installed software watching your computer OR from compromised machines at the various merchants and banks. Just because a web site uses SSL or states it is a Secure Server does NOT guarantee your data is safe. All it means is that the communications between your machine and the web site is encrypted (or at least is supposed to be). Many banks will NOT honor their fraud policies if the ID theft was due to Phishing.
