Why sites ask for so much..

You ask sometimes, why do you need this information.. all of this to register? The reasons for this is to keep your account safe.. now a days they're a lot of hackers, hacking into people's accounts. You never know what an account holds.. some personal information, maybe addresses to homes, maybe even bank card numbers. The reasons registration forms ask so much is because they care about your safety. Doing some research, I came across one of the top 10 worse hacking incidents of all time. Russian computer geek Vladimir Levin effected what can easily be called The Italian Job online - he was the first person to hack into a bank to extract money. Early 1995, he hacked into Citibank and robbed $10 million. Interpol arrested him in the UK in 1995, after he had transferred money to his accounts in the US, Finland, Holland, Germany and Israel. The reason the registry is such a hassle is to prevent things like this from happening.
