From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
"Identity theft is a form of stealing someone's identity in which someone pretends to be someone else by assuming that person's identity, usually as a method to gain access to resources or obtain credit and other benefits in that person's name. The victim of identity theft (here meaning the person whose identity has been assumed by the identity thief) can suffer adverse consequences if they are held responsible for the perpetrator's actions. Identity theft occurs when someone uses another's personally identifying information, like their name, identifying number, or credit card number, without their permission, to commit fraud or other crimes."
Notice the last sentence? Noticing money missing from your bank account is only the beginning! Imagine being pulled over for speeding, and the next thing you know you're being handcuffed and arrested for a crime you did not commit, in a state you have never even been to. THAT is what true identity theft is. What would you do? Who would you call?
Think it wont happen to you? Why do you have car insurance? Or homeowners insurance? In the case of identity theft, the odds are against you. You are more likely to fall victim to identity theft than your house is to catch fire. Why take the risk? You can have the same peace of mind with your identity protection by relying on Safe ID Trust to take care of you.
The Federal Trade Commission and law enforcement authorities tell us that identity theft cannot be 100% prevented. A very well known Identity Theft company with constant national media advertising has recently settled a class action lawsuit with the FTC for $113 million for false advertising and for claiming that their customers' identities could not be stolen. According to Lisa Madigan, Illinois's Attorney General: "There are some very basic steps that you can take to protect yourself from identity theft, and most of them are free." She adds: "There is unfortunately no foolproof way to avoid ID theft."
However, there are some concrete steps you can take to seriously reduce your risk of having your identity stolen. As Ms. Madigan said, these are all free, and they go way beyond shredding your old bills.
How would you answer?
I don’t know…
Not to worry, you are not alone. Most people are not aware of the damage identity theft can cause, until it is too late. As a member of Safe ID Trust, you and your family will have the peace of mind knowing that you are protected. In the event of an identity theft, we will recover your stolen identity back to pre-theft status.
If only it were that easy! Most banks and financial institutions will work with you regarding funds that have been illegally withdrawn from your account; however, they have nothing to do with the recovery or restoration of your stolen identity.
I have a plan with another company…
That’s great news. Any plan is better than no plan. However, most plans only provide “assisted” recovery, meaning your plan provider will send you paperwork with instructions on what YOU need to do. At Safe ID Trust, we make it simple. Once a police report has been filed, and you’ve signed a Limited Power of Attorney, we do the rest for you! Safe ID Trust provides a “FULL HANDS OFF” recovery plan. We do all the work to recover your identity and restore your good name to pre-theft status!
That won’t happen to me…
Did you know that approximately 1 in 30 consumers will have their identity stolen this year? Identity theft continues to be one of the fastest growing and most reported crimes in the country. If you do not have a quality ID Theft Recovery Plan for you and your family, you are at risk for spending countless hours and thousands of dollars trying to restore your identity.
Yes, you should contact the police to file a report. The police are willing to make a report. Typically, this is where the investigation starts and stops. More importantly, police and authorities have nothing to do with the actual restoration of your stolen identity. You will be left spending time and money trying to figure out who to call, who to write and what to say.
