You can avoid becoming a victim of identity theft by safeguarding your personal information like Social Security number and financial details, being cautious about sharing information online or with unknown sources, monitoring your credit report regularly, and using strong, unique passwords for all your accounts. Additionally, be wary of phishing attempts and secure your devices with updated antivirus and security software.

How do you link justice and mercy?

Very difficult. Most often justice is the opposite of mercy. Example: The thief steals money and spends it before he is caught and tried and found guilty of the crime. JUSTICE is served when the thief is sent to prison AND ordered by the judge to pay the money back to the victim. MERCY would be GIVEN by the victim to the thief if the victim forgives the criminal and does not press charges and tells the thief to keep the stolen money. The judge could also extend MERCY if the victim could not by sentencing the thief to a short time in prison and/or not ordering the money to be paid back.
