LifeLock has recently added a few new additional layers of proactive identity theft protection ;
LifeLock now patrols the Internet in search of the social security numbers, credit card numbers, driver’s license numbers and email addresses of LifeLock members to protect against the information being illegally traded or sold online.
United States Postal Service reports that 45 million change-of-address forms are filed annually. These change of address forms can be used by identity thieves to obtain personal information for the purpose of identity theft. That’s why, in addition to the daily online scouring of the internet through eRecon, LifeLock will also introduce TrueAddress™. LifeLock’s new TrueAddress service searches to see if members have had a change of address form filed and alert them if there are changes.
WalletLock works to cancel and replace all documents and personal identifying information inside a wallet if it is lost or stolen. If ever your wallet goes missing, you can reach LifeLock 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A WalletLock specialist will help you contact each credit card, bank or document issuing company, cancel your affected accounts and complete the paperwork and steps necessary to replace your lost documents, including your credit/debit cards, driver's license, social security card, insurance cards, checkbook - even travelers checks.
The additional protections are included with LifeLock membership and are offered at no additional charge to members.
Here's a glimpse of what else they do;
- They ask the credit bureaus to set free fraud alerts on your behalf and unless your circumstances change and you tell them not to, every 90 days or so they reactivate them again as they only remain active for about 90 days. You can do this for free if you'd prefer.
- request that your name be removed from pre-approved credit card and junk mail lists and keep making the requests as they expire. Statistics show that this is one of the many ways that thieves hijack identities. You can do this for free yourself.
- order your free credit reports to be sent directly to you yearly. You can do this yourself.
- Last but not least, if your Identity is stolen while you are a member of LifeLock, they will do whatever it takes to recover your identity. If you need lawyers, investigators, accountants, case managers, whatever, they're yours. If you lose money as a result of the theft, they will reimburse you. They will do whatever it takes to help you recover your good name and promise to spend up to $1,000,000 to do it. You can do this yourself too -but do you really want to? Are you prepared to? And do you know how to?
