If someone in your family has their identity stolen, you could try to fix it, yourself. However, it will likely take you 200+ hours—sometimes over several years—to get things fully restored. Are you willing to take that risk?
With one simple plan, you can protect yourself, your children, your spouse/partner, your parents, and your in-laws from the fallout associated with identity theft.
Credit monitoring services can help you keep an eye on credit report activity, but they can’t help protect your Social Security number. What’s more, credit monitoring can only alert you after your identity has already been compromised.
Here are just a few of the stressful issues that you may deal with when identity theft occurs… on top of your day-to-day professional and personal responsibilities:
- You may struggle with lack of accessibility to institutions that are supposed to help.
- There is the difficulty and frustration of dealing with three credit reporting agencies.
- Often victims don’t get a response from institutions that are supposed to help.
- Contacting the accounts that have been compromised often results in frustration while you try to prove that you are innocent.
- Debt collectors may be verbally abusive and not care that your identity has been stolen.
- You’ll spend countless hours on hold or trying to find the right person to talk to.
