With all the financial and personal paperwork required for a Retirement Visa, "Non-Immigrant O Visa", is anyone worried about Identity Theft?
Do we all think that the Thai Immigration Dept handles all this paperwork securely? I'm talking about the beginning phase where you must get a 90-day Visa to start, all the way through to extending an existing Retirement Visa each year.

I don't at all and wonder when we will start seeing some of this personal data sold for nefarious purposes. What recourse will we have at that point?
I've been hacked back home twice now and all they culprits needed was an old check (where we used to have SSN, phone and address printed). Yes most of us have gone paperless now, but you best get rid of all old paperwork securely. I'm not sure what it would take here in Thailand to be able to acquire a new debit / credit card linked to "your" bank account.
