Identity Theft

A $50 Billion industry is big business. Unfortunately, that's how much fraudulent activity is charged each year stemming from identity theft. It's a big business alright; and one in which you are a potential victim.

There are a variety of ways in which data thieves can steal your personal information. They can sift through trash to find bills and credit statements; they can steal credit and debit card numbers when your card is used; they can "phish" your email and retrieve your data while posing as legitimate businesses. The list goes on and on.

Once they have your data, it doesn't take long for them to wreak havoc. For example, they can drain your bank and checking accounts. Or, they can open new loans for cars and other big ticket items. They can even charge your accounts for vacations, home furnishings, and surgical procedures such as Liposuction and plastic surgery.

And after you realize you're a victim, it can take months or even years to straighten out the mess.

While no one can guarantee that your personal information will never be stolen, Identity Theft Protection services work to make sure that this information can not be used to bring you harm.

There are a number of features you'll want to consider when looking for an Identity Theft Protection service. Some of these include:

  • Services offered.  Some companies provide extensive protection and monitoring services; others provide just basic reporting.
  • Cost.  The cost for these services can vary widely. You want to be sure you're getting good value for your dollar.
  • Guarantee.  Some services provide no guarantee of protection; others provide up to $1 million worth of coverage.

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Identity Theft programs available today. We hope this information helps you protect your identity and credit files right away!
