Can You Afford To Take Time Away From Work To Restore Your Identity?

Identity Theft by Laptop It seems to me that we hear about so many occurrences of Identity Theft that I believe that many people just disregard current reports with the belief that 1) it will never happen to me  or 2) my bank will take care of it and 3) since I don’t buy anything on the internet then I am not at risk.

Identity Theft in 2012 was for the 12th year the highest incidence of crime reported to the FTC and increasing in frequency.  Identity Theft occurs in five major areas, not just on bank instruments and credit cards. It also occurs on Social Security numbers and especially income tax filing, Medicare and medical records with your insurance ID numbers, with driver’s license numbers, with pure theft of someone’s name and identification, and on the internet by data theft. Banks do not monitor all of these numbers and possibilities so they cannot protect you for everything if that is what you believe.

Since no-one can stop identity theft the solutions are to monitor to see when it happens and to take immediate corrective actions as quickly as possible after finding that it has happened.

Who can monitor all of these possible areas for you? What kind of company and employees do you think are required to perform this kind of monitoring? Are you in a position to leave your job for several weeks or months to restore your identity in case it is stolen? Do you know who to contact to restore your identity? Will you be allowed access to data banks that contain the information which will show where your data has been compromised? Just because you may have an insurance policy to correct some of your losses, who is going to perform the restoration actions for you? Will you get reimbursed for everything including your time?

Do you think that you may be a bit naive about protecting and restoring your identity as well as the protection of your spouse and your children? Children are prime targets as their social security numbers are not used until age 18. It would benefit you greatly for you to read the next three articles to enlighten yourself as to what solutions are available for the horrendous crime that can virtually destroy your life.

Do you have the time, money, licenses, access to personal data, and knowledge to perform your own investigations in case your identity theft is violated?
