You pay all your bills on time, but you’re application for a mortgage is denied. Turns out, someone has racked up over $100,000 in debts in your name, and your credit score is in the basement. So what do you do now?
At your annual check-up, you’re shocked when the doctor asks about a knee surgery you didn’t have. Turns out, someone else had the surgery—and filled many pricey prescriptions—using your health insurance. Now their medical records are merged into yours. Will it ever be possible to untangle this mess?
You’re watching the news when you hear your name—wanted in connection with an armed robbery! Somehow a criminal has created an entire identity with your personal information. How will you go about clearing your name?
Are you at risk?
You shred all your sensitive mail, regularly update your passwords, and check your credit score once a year. Still, no matter how careful you are, you can become a victim of identity theft.
The chances are higher than you think. More than 17 million people, or about 7 percent, of adults in the United States will be victims of identity theft in any given year. What if you’re one of them?
More than just a nightmare.
Cleaning up your records can be a difficult process, and it’s hard to know where to start. Hours of phone calls, mountains of mail, anger, stress and lost sleep… The Federal Trade Commission estimates that it takes 6 months and over 200 hours of work to recover from identity theft.
Wouldn’t it be helpful to have someone do the work for you?
