Identity Protection Companies Not Perfect

Remember those ads from LifeLock with the CEO displaying his social security number claiming they could protect clients from identity theft? You can check out the full story here.  Despite his promises of the security ofLifeLock, Todd Davis has had his identity stolen 13 times and was forced to step down as CEO. Use common sense with your personal information but often, even that is not foolproof. Your information is held by your bank, doctor, credit card companies and the list goes on and on. I would recommend checking your credit reports at least once a year as most states allow you to get it from all three major credit reporting agencies for free. Don’t leave your financial future in the hands of others!
