Your Credit Score
Identity thieves today can get a hold of your personal information from trash cans, dumpsters, stolen mail and even computer malware and viruses. Once identity thieves have your information it's easy for them to open new credit accounts and make purchases in your name. Most people comfort themselves with false hope that identity theft only "happens to other people." However, the numbers show you're more likely a target than you think:
- An identity is stolen every four seconds on average.1
- There were over 8.1 million victims of identity theft in 2010 in the United States alone.2
- It took an average of 33 hours to resolve an identity theft in 2010.3
“I had to do so many things to make sure I got Stephanie back. I spent all the time on the phones, I had to forward my mail, I had to move, I had to take time off work. I was docked pay, I eventually had to move across the country and change jobs, and it was so disruptive to my life… It doesn’t matter how old you are, it doesn’t matter how much money you have or where you are, identity theft can strike you…Identity theft is a huge thing, and it really needs to be taken so much more seriously than it is.”
— Stephanie V.
“The significance of this event for me was that it was on a holiday and it was on a Sunday and no banks were open. LifeLock was open and had sent me the alerts and they protected me from the breach of my bank account. I believe that everyone should have identity theft protection as part of financial planning… I chose the LifeLock Ultimate package because I wanted the most comprehensive identity theft protection available.”
