Thieves could have gotten her information from work files, online, her trash or her mail. Nowadays, no one is safe. After what happened to my sister, I have been very careful about the information I share. But even with all the care I might take, I am still at risk.
I do a lot of things online like shop and enter giveaways. Through my blogs I share some personal information. With that information and a few account numbers, anyone could gain access to my bank accounts or credit cards.
That is where LifeLock comes in. LifeLock is a an industry leader in the rapidly growing field of identity theft protection. LifeLock provides proactive identity theft protection. LifeLock helps you keep track of potential problems by alerting you to any of those problems.
I received a one-year membership and these are the benefits of my membership:
- Alerts of potential threats–both credit and noncredit related
- Online access to a personalized dashboard showing current threats
- Relentless monitoring for exposure of your personal information
- Member services with local phone support—24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year
- Stolen or lost wallet remediation services to help cancel and replace credit and debit cards
- Comprehensive recovery services if you become a victim of identity theft on our watch.
The sign up was easy. I answered a few questions and then I was able to add my bank accounts and credit card to be monitored. I am waiting to see if anything comes up. I am a also considering upgrading to the higher memberships because you can access your credit reports and surveillance of unregulated global networks and file-sharing sites.
The basic membership is only $110 a year and the Ultimate membership is only $275 per year. Trust me, that is a bargain compared with what my sister has had to pay out to lawyers helping her try to regain her identity.
The way I look at it is that it is an investment in my peace of mind and a way to keep my life mine. If you would like to try LifeLock, I have a one-year membership to give away to one lucky reader. Trust me, identity theft is something you want to take seriously. To win, enter on the Rafflecopter widget below.
