Simple idea to STAMP OUT identity fraud and cybercrimes forever. Fraud and cybercrimes are growing so fast ONLY because we rely on unreliable signature, PIN and password systems. Solve this problem by making these systems reliable as described. Signature system is unreliable because in the event of crime signature does not even expose fraudster's gender. To make signature reliable all we have to do is to apply our ID sticker (supplied by financial institutions with our photo, name and their logo printed on it) to the document and countersign. PIN and Password systems are unreliable because fraudsters have options to pick them. To make PIN and password systems reliable all we have to do is to store PIN on key size thumbprint activated memory stick. Call this EPIN (electronic PIN). EPIN will deter card fraud and if this EPIN is used as our password them it will deter cybercrime too. Your comments and support to implement these systems will be appreciated
