Identity Theft By Stealing Your Tax Return Rebate

E-File Tax Identity Theft Fraud is Exploding: Here is How to Protect Yourself

by on February 6, 20135 Comments

As with anything, when the majority of a population uses something, it usually becomes the target of malicious or criminal activity. Just ask Microsoft Internet Explorer engineers.

Now that over 80% of tax returns are e-filed with the IRS, the thieves have found clever ways to claim your tax refunds through fraudulent identity theft, as I alluded to in Monday’s tax return guide.

E-filing had such a good thing going there for its users – quicker returns, easier to catch errors, no trip to the post office, and the peace of mind that your return reached its destination. And the IRS loves e-filing because they result in easier audit pulls, electronic data storage, and fraud detection.

5 Places Where You Should Never Give Your Social Security Number

Credit.comBy Adam Levin | Credit.com – Fri, Mar 29, 2013 3:29 PM EDT

Every time you go to a new doctor or dentist and they give you a clipboard brimming with documents to fill out and sign, notice how they always ask for your Social Security number? Do you dutifully give it up? Did you ever wonder if they really need it?

I once asked a doctor why he wanted it. His response: “I don’t really know. I guess it’s because we’ve always asked for it.” (In actuality, most doctors ask in case your insurance doesn’t pay the entire invoice and/or to fill out a death certificate if you die. Offer a next of kin who knows the number instead, and your phone number for billing issues.)

What is a Blog Trackback?

Using Trackbacks to Market Your Blog and Increase Traffic to Your Blog

By , About.com Guide

A blog trackback is basically a tap on the shoulder to another blogger. Consider this scenario to further explain trackbacks:

Imagine you are reading your friend Bob’s blog about the New York Knicks. Bob published a great post about a recent game between the Knicks and the Orlando Magic called The Knicks Rule.

Now, imagine you write a blog about the Orlando Magic, and you decide to write a post that talks about Bob’s The Knicks Rule post. As a courtesy, you could send Bob an email to let him know you wrote about his post on your blog, or you could give him a call. Luckily, the blogosphere makes that courtesy call a lot easier and gives you an opportunity for some self promotion, too.

Not Even John Roberts Can Escape Credit-Card Fraud

Mar 29, 2013 1:27pm

ap john roberts nt 130329 wblog Not Even John Roberts Can Escape Credit Card FraudCredit: Cody Duty/Houston Chronicle/AP Photo

It’s possible that someone in Kentucky has been buying stuff with John Roberts’s credit card.

The Supreme Court’s chief justice has been traipsing around Washington, D.C., bemoaning to metro-area counter-workers that his credit-card info has been stolen, and that he now has to use cash.

First, it was a Starbucks barista, where Roberts stopped for coffee in suburban Maryland on Tuesday, before he heard arguments on California’s Prop. 8 gay-marriage ban. Roberts typically uses a card, but a Starbucks employee told The Washington Post that Roberts, this time mentioned the apparent identity theft, after paying cash….

If the Chief Justice Can Be an Identity Theft Victim, Is Anyone Safe?

by Matt Brownell, Mar 29th 2013 3:30PM

Confirmation Hearings Begin In The Senate For John Roberts

No one is safe from identity theft — not even John Roberts, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

On the morning that the Supreme Court was scheduled to hear arguments about gay marriage, Roberts was overheard telling a barista at his local Starbucks that he would have to pay cash for his coffee, as his credit card information had been stolen. The Associated Press spoke to a Supreme Court spokesperson, who confirmed that someone got hold of one of the Chief Justice’s credit card account numbers. Apparently that meant that Roberts had to use cash while he waited for a new card from the bank.

Supreme Court Justices: They’re just like us!

Roberts isn’t the first high-profile Washington figure to become the victim of identity theft lately — earlier this month, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and the director of the FBI all had their credit reports stolen and posted to a Russian website. Celebrities including Beyonce Knowles were also affected……

It is important that Americans understand how to deal with identity theft issues most effectively.  It is very important to have as many of your key identification numbers monitored for activity as possible. You need to know as quickly as possible if your and that of your spouse…and especially your children…is being violated. Then you need to have the assurance of professional investigators, who understand the ways of correcting your problems, take charge of restoring your identity as quickly as possible. Be very cautious of any identity theft program that requires that you restore your own identity, no matter how much reimbursement, as restoration can take years even if you know what you are doing. Be advised that the LegalShield/Kroll Investigation Services identity theft shield to my knowledge is the only company that provides restoration services for your identity.  You can learn more about these services by picking on the banner below…

Think you’re not at risk? Unfortunately, you are. Identity Theft Shield click here!

12 million people were victims of identity theft in 2012. Don’t wait until it happens to you. Get Peace of Mind today. Get protection before the event can happen and you are covered for restoration. Restoration coverage after it happens is a different situation. Be prepared for identity theft!

Florida Is The State Where You’re Most Likely To Get Scammed, FTC Report Finds

The Huffington Post  |  By Posted: 02/27/2013 12:08 pm EST  |  Updated: 02/27/2013 12:32 pm EST

Most people know Florida as the home of Disney World, sandy beaches and senior citizens enjoying their retirement. But Florida has another, more unsavory distinction: It’s the state where you’re most likely to get scammed.

Florida has the highest rate of fraud and identity theft complaints per capita, according to the Federal Trade Commission’s 2012 report of annual complaints. And you’re at risk of getting your identity stolen almost anywhere in the state, nine out of the top 10 metropolitan areas for identity theft complaints are in Florida, the report found.

The situation is especially bad in South Florida, which has been the nation’s identity theft leader since 2010, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The number of identity theft complaints more than doubled in the region between 2011 and 2012.

IRS Apologizes for $60,000 Star Trek Parody

The Internal Revenue Service got chewed out by Congress for wasting taxpayer money on a
couple of videos made for a training and leadership conference in 2010. One was a parody of
Gilligan’s Island, but most of the $60,000 spent was for a Star Trek parody that “does not appear to

Frivolous and Lawsuits Have New Bed Partner: Useless

By consumerist.com May 31, 2006

Yay! Free money. Clampants got a card in the mail yesterday from the “Benny/Lundberg Settlement” against Sprint, reading:

“You have been identified as a potential member of a Class Action brought by current and former customers of Sprint branded wireless telephone service that will be settling claims.”

While he was a Sprint member before switching over to Cingular, Clampants is less than jumping out of his rollie chair to sign up. Possible benefits pending his participation include a $2.50 long-distance card, or a series of eight quarterly credits totaling no more than $7.

If he doesn’t want to wait that long, he could also get an immediate credit of $15. However, to do so, he’ll have to sign a new two-year contract with Sprint.

This is quite different from you doing the work and requesting reimbursement after the work is completed. In many cases you will not qualify for reimbursement from an insurance policy that has exclusions.

Kroll Investigative Services, another 40 year old company like LegalShield,  many years ago developed a highly effective identity theft protection package for employees of Fortune 500 companies. In addition to applying to all five forms of identity theft including credit card, bank, medical records, social security, drivers license, and personal identity, Kroll Investigative Services, unlike any other, employs licensed investigators to repair your identity under the inclusions of the plan. Using limited powers of attorney these investigators do all the work necessary to restore your identity. I know of no other company that offers this kind of restoration by experienced licensed investigators. Others will reimburse you for some of the expenses incurred for restoration however how does one get reimbursed for your time required doing the restoration work and time lost at your regular occupation? All of these factors need considering as well as the monthly cost of different services.

Worry Less! Live More! Gain Total Peace of Mind!


Do you or your family ever feel at risk about anything?  Do you now have total “peace of mind”?      Do any of these risks that you think about ever concern you? The next question is do you think they should concern you and do you think that you should do anything to mitigate or minimize those risks? This post is to reflect on the major risk areas in your lives and to give you an opportunity to evaluate your current situation and determine if you should take any actions. As humans, we are much more concerned with fear than with any other emotion that we experience…so why not address your fears?  With a LegalShield legal plan membership you can Worry Less! Live More! Gain Total Peace of Mind!

Ray Charles 

Financial risks include paying your mortgage and bills and having enough money to do all the things you want to do including having extra money for travel, college, vacation, retirement, second home and more!  Are you satisfied with your career and future employment situation? Are your earnings needs being met? Look good for the future?  Do you have a Plan B?      In the event of accident or long-term illness do you have protection for these events? Legal risks include those actions that you or your family may take that are subject to laws,  actions by others who may want to file legal actions against you, by people who may not abide by the laws and adversely affect you, and accidents which occur and may bring significant legal actions and consequences.

What happens to you and your family in case of trivial or traumatic legal issues? Do you have any way to cover most of these costs? Identity theft risks are the risks associated with someone stealing your personal name and identity and using it or selling it to someone else, using your Social Security number and filing your tax return or using it for employment by someone, your Drivers License number to avoid arrests or to gain the ability to drive, your checking account to gain access to your cash assets, and credit cards to purchase goods illegally. For (12) years now this has been the highest consumer complaint crime in the U.S. and some 30,000 new victims of identity theft wake up each morning to this very horrible event that may take you years to restore. Medical risks include health issues whether caused by natural or accidental reasons. Most everyone of us would agree that if you do not have good health that all of your other elements of life are useless. It is imperative that we maintain good health! Do you have medical protection to protect you against depletion of your assets and cash reserve? Home ownership and rental risks include those risks that occur in the event of fire or flood. Do you have insurance on your property and/or personal items in the event of loss? Automobile accident risks include risks of damage or destruction of property and injury to individuals. Do you have legal coverage to pay your family’s legal costs to represent you in the case of being charged with accidental homicide? Ask your agent if you have this coverage? Rarely does an automobile policy include such coverage. Small business ownership risks include legal costs, property costs, liability costs, healthcare costs and others. Do you have a budget planned for each of these potential risk areas? For purposes of this post I will focus on the importance of protecting yourself against personal and family legal risks, identity theft including children who are the strong targets,and small businesses legal and growth risks. Most of us have heard and may be protected for the other areas of risks mentioned above, however, 90% of the population is not really aware of how to protect themselves from legal risks, identity theft risks and small business legal and growth risks. Do you believe that there are risks in these areas of living? Do you think that it may be a good idea to protect yourselves for these risks? The reason that I ask you these questions is that many millions of Americans now have these legal issues, and due to unaffordable costs, not knowing a qualified attorney, or not knowing what to do next, they just do nothing. It is my intention to give you solutions to solve these issues, at costs that you can afford, and to give you options of what to do next. Could this be helpful to you? This  company and associates have done this for 40+ years with highly qualified attorneys at costs that you can afford. And by the way, if you have a small business with less than (99) employees, we have very affordable small business legal and consulting plans for $75 and $125 per month. Across the U.S. and Canada qualified legal plan services for individuals and families are offered at very reasonable costs, for under $20 per month.   A legal plan and an identity theft plan are also available for less than $1 per day. You can begin these services immediately by filling out the information at the following website…        

 

After completing the information requested on this site within 24-36 hours you will be provided with your membership number that entitles you to full access to all legal services. Upon receipt of your membership number which I will provide personally to you, you may contact the legal firm for unlimited questions and discussions. Your request will be responded to by a qualified, trusted attorney within 8 hours of your request. The company is well-respected by the Attorney Generals of states in the U.S. and the Better Business Bureau, having served some 4 million people now for over 40 years.  Worry Less!

What is “Total Identity Theft”

Identity Theft

Identity Theft

“Total Identity Theft” includes not only theft of a person’s bank account and credit cards, however to include driver’s license, social security number, medical records and the victim’s actual persona.  As we are in the middle of the Christmas Season, it is important to note that identity theft can take at least five major different forms…not just credit card or bank accounts theft…and when it does it is called “total identity theft”. The reason for my focusing on this topic is that the average citizen has no idea of how to correct the results of identity theft, much less stop it, and that professional investigators and attorneys are best equipped to save you considerable time and many dollars should you ever be a victim.  It is important to realize that it is virtually impossible to stop identity theft from occurring and that once monitoring gives the alerts that something is wrong, then the important job of restoration becomes most important.

The Associated Press

There are more than 400 victims across 12 states… THE DAILY NEWS l

Some ID theft victims notified, others sought

    Posted: Sunday, December 16, 2012 12:00 am BY MARCELLE HANEMANN The Daily News | The Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office is notifying local residents whose personal information was found in possession of a woman charged last month with numerous counts of identity theft. Capt. Tommie Sorrell, who led the multi agency investigation that broke up the identity theft ring centered on information pulled from the LSU Health system by then-employee Pamela Reams, said there are also victims whose information was not intercepted. She urges everyone affected by the crime to make contact. There are more than 400 victims across 12 states, and a significant number are residents of Washington Parish, Sorrell said.

    Identity Theft

    Identity Theft

    Give yourself and your family the Identity Theft protection you deserve!

    Simply put, identity theft is the use of someone’s personal information without their permission. Identity theft can be used to obtain new lines of credit, exploit existing credit cards or bank accounts, obtain a mortgage, file a fraudulent tax return, use your social security number, use your driver’s license number, use your medical records and identification, and to act and live as you by using your name and identity.

    LegalShield and Kroll Investigative Services, both of which are 40+ year old companies, developed a joint agreement in 2003 to market an Identity Theft Shield membership product that is considered by many as the best available product on the market. Kroll Investigative Services, having some 32 international offices around the world, employs licensed investigators who have typically been members of the FBI or CIA. The identity Theft Shield protection was developed by Kroll to fill these  kind of protection needs for Fortune 500 companies, and more than 35% of these class of companies offer this protection to their employees today on a voluntary benefit basis, More and more companies, both large and small, are realizing these are important benefits to their employees and are beginning to offer them.

    These licensed investigators, using limited time power of attorneys, restore your identity with all of the proper agencies, credit bureaus, and data bases,  so that you do not have to use your personal time, money, travel expenses, emotional energy, and help you avoid filling out request forms for reimbursement as some firms do. I describe this service to be provided by professionals who know what they are doing, are well-trained and experienced, and the costs seem to be far less than competitive pricing. On a standalone basis the cost per month is $12.95 for the primary partner and supporting partner, with $1 total being added for all children with up to (4) protected at any one time. With a LegalShield Family Legal Plan at $17 or $26 per month your cost is $9.95 per month, with the $1 addition for children. You can begin your LegalShield/Kroll Investigative Services Identity Theft Shield membership immediately by going to this site…

    After completing the information requested on this site within 24-36 hours you will be provided with your membership number that entitles you to full access to your identity theft services. Upon receipt of your membership number which I will provide personally to you, you may contact Kroll Investigative Services for unlimited questions and discussions.

    Would you like to feel legally more secure?

    wwposter15



    Would you like to feel more secure?

    Hello!

    Have you considered what you would do if you had awakened this morning to find that your identity had been stolen?  Where would you begin to solve the issues?

    Would you prefer to have a licensed investigator and attorney to call and report your disappointing news to them?

    Unfortunately, some 30,000 citizens found themselves to be new identity theft victims this morning…likely totaling nearly 11 million victims in the U.S. this year. ID theft crime has now for 12 years been the leading consumer complaint crime and costs exceed that of the illegal drug industry. It is much more lucrative than drugs as conviction rates are about 5% and bodily and legal risks are much lower.

    Equally as important in these times are legal issues, either trivial or traumatic. With the economy crawling along many individuals are in need of much more legal advice and protection for their families.  A large number of lawsuits will be filed this year in state courts throughout the land. Over 15 million. That works out to one new lawsuit every two seconds and some 41,000 per day for 365 days…. Or one lawsuit for every 12 adults in America. Many Americans and Canadians need good legal advice on their mortgages, debts, or on a purchase or sale of a home, car or other major item having warranty.  In many cases there are documents to be read and reviewed before signing. Traffic violations occur, The IRS wants to review past income tax returns. Many civil suits are filed in the hopes of receiving large lump sum payments.  Unbelievably, 7 of 10 U.S. citizens pass away in the U.S without a will, living will and health care power of attorney documents.  Divorces, bankruptcies, garnishments and child custody issues are very common. The list of legal matters is virtually endless.

    Any number of trivial or traumatic events can happen at any time, usually without notice.  As normal human beings we can really use the services of a trusted,  affordable attorney 2-6 times per year. We just do not call on them many times because we want to avoid the expense, the hassle, the risk of choosing the right attorney for the issue, feeling intimidated by the process, so we just go on without good legal advice. This may not be in our best interests. My research indicates that we Americans need legal plans and ID theft shields and real identity restoration by licensed investigators more frequently than we use automobile insurance, health insurance, and homeowner’s insurance.

    Many millions of Americans now have these legal issues, and due to typically unaffordable costs, not knowing a qualified attorney to deal with your issues, or not knowing what to do next, they just do nothing.

    For 40+ years LegalShield has provided legal plans with highly qualified attorneys at costs that you can afford. And by the way, if you have a small business with less than (99) employees, LegalShield offers very affordable small business legal and consulting plans for $75 and $125 per month. LegalShield offers across the U.S. and Canada qualified legal plan services for individuals and families at very reasonable costs, for under $20 per month.   A legal plan and an identity theft plan are also available for less than $1 per day.

    After completing the information requested on this site within 24-36 hours you will be provided with your membership number that entitles you to full access to all legal services.

Must you do the many hours of work over unknown geography and with many parties or would you prefer that licensed investigators take on your case working with attorneys and do the work for you? If you choose the licensed investigator approach, you can continue your lifestyle and work without interruption while professionals solve the issues on your behalf. Otherwise you may be signing up for thousands of hours of restoration work yourself, hopefully to be reimbursed.

    Some identity theft protection firms will mail you the restoration forms for you to do the restoration work, you make the phone calls and travel yourself at your own expense…while some  provide reimbursement insurance for some of your losses, however may impose limitations and exclusions for types of losses and may not cover all the several major types of identity theft.  This article is intended to inform you of the differences between restoration by licensed investigative professionals or restoration by a do-it-yourself plan that may take you years of work and on trips requiring thousands of miles of travel, and many, many phone calls.  The question is… can you afford the time and money to enter into a do-it-yourself restoration plan? Most people wanting to protect themselves from identity theft do not know of the licensed restoration professionals solution.

    I suggest that you need to inform yourself and your friends that there is an alternative which is much preferred by those who have been informed about the differences.  Once someone’s identity has been stolen, the preferable solution is restoration to the original status before the theft. This includes credit positions, positions with banks, drivers licenses, social security numbers, medicare records, medical records, and many agencies that have your data. Very few people are aware that preventing identity theft is virtually impossible.  Even more do not realize what courses of action must be taken once their identity has been stolen. Very few people realize that in order to restore your identity that it will take many hours and typically years of effort to contact all of the parties that have your identity data that may have been negatively impacted. Do you know in how many digital data bases your personal identity resides? And in what locations, companies, government agencies, hospitals, employers, stores, suppliers could your data be located? If you are concerned about protecting your identity to the greatest degree, with restoration by licensed investigators and attorneys, I urge you to evaluate this identity theft package and compare it fully with any other. Just fill out the form to obtain more information.

    Again, I sincerely recommend that you protect yourself for identity theft, including your children, and when you do so, be sure to look for an identity theft package that does not just mail you the do-it-yourself forms for you to correct the issue, but includes their own staff of licensed investigators using power of attorneys and working with very reputable provider attorney firms. This is quite different from you doing the work and requesting reimbursement after the work is completed. In many cases you will not qualify for reimbursement from an insurance policy that has exclusions.

    How Much Is Your Identity Worth?

    How Much Is Your Identity Worth?


    How Do You Measure The Worth of Your Identity?

    I heard an expert on Identity Theft give a presentation today…and he asked… HOW MUCH IS   YOUR IDENTITY WORTH?  To You? To Someone Else? What value would you place on your own personal identity? How would you calculate the value? Would it be in dollars? Is it one year’s earnings? two or three years earnings?  It could amount to all of your assets. Is your identity measured  in terms of emotions? Identity theft delivers a powerful negative emotional impact to the victim. Most say their lives will never be the same after it happened to them. Is it measured in terms of time? Victims say that they have been attempting to repair their identity, credit, reputation and other related personal items for years. Some victims say that they are no longer able to buy a home or car or make a major purchase as their information has been tarnished. The real impact of identity theft can be unimaginable! It would be very difficult to accept the fact that someone else is using my identity, my bank accounts, my social security number, my medical records information, my drivers license, and for someone to state to other people that they were me like attending work using my name! How would you feel about this?

    Should you try to protect your identity from others using it?      Why?   Why not?  

    What can happen if someone else uses your identity?  

    What can you do about it?   

    What will that person who stole your identity do to your life and lifestyle?

    Who will protect your identity?

    How can you protect your identity?

    Thinking about the subject of someone stealing your identity is not pleasant…but not to think about it is even worse…It can be that it is irresponsible.  I just have seen enough people get hurt that part of my life is dedicated to helping others avoid the trauma that losing your identity can bring. I am a strong advocate that every citizen needs the best identity theft protection for themselves and their children. The best plan provides for restoration of identity by licensed investigators. I also recommend coupling that with with a family legal plan to provide the optimum in identity theft and legal plan protection.

    I suggest that you need to inform yourself and your friends that there is an alternative which is much preferred by those who have been informed about the differences.  Once someone’s identity has been stolen, the preferable solution is restoration to the original status before the theft. This includes credit positions, positions with banks, drivers licenses, social security numbers, medicare records, medical records, and many agencies that have your data.

    Woman Chases Down Identity Thief - Good Morning America

    Woman Chases Down Identity Thief - Good Morning America+



    Karen Lodrick

    When you invest a few minutes on the subject of an identity thief….which should be at the top of your priority list for you and those that you love…we can find some very interesting information. I found this incredible story yesterday about a young woman in San Francisco that recognized from bank videos the person in Starbucks that stole her identity…and then chased down her identity thief through the streets of San Francisco…no easy task…and called 911…asked a cab driver to stop because the woman was a thief…and the police came and arrested her…the victim showed incredible courage and determination to have this person arrested.  This brave and determined young woman victim is named Karen Lodrick…and you can begin to learn about her here…she is a heroic young woman!

     http://fightingbacknow.com/

    Fortunately, the San Francisco media heard the story and it was reported on Good Morning America in the following filmclip…

    Karen Lodrick on Good Morning America

    As you heard in the video, the thief received 43 days  in jail and 3 months probation…a trifling sentence for all the trauma that she put Karen through.  This is incredibly unfair to the victim…and it sends no message to the thief that if you do this you will be punished. Until we recognize the seriousness of and punish criminals for these kinds of crimes on our fellow man, then we will only see an increase in the activity.

    Karen Lodrick has proceeded to become an advocate, teacher, and speaker about Identity Theft. Her life will never be the same since that event. And she is one of the few that at least caught the perpetrator. And because of our laws…there was minimum justice.

    Once someone’s identity has been stolen, the preferable solution is restoration to the original status before the theft. This includes credit positions, positions with banks, drivers licenses, social security numbers, medicare records, medical records, and many agencies that have your data.

    Identity Theft Can Bring Your Life to a screeching halt!

    Identity Theft Can Bring Your Life to a screeching halt!


    Identity Theft-It could happen to you!

    What would happen if you woke up tomorrow morning and learned that your identity had been stolen, your bank accounts had a zero balance, your credit rating  is at zero, and someone else has received the refund on your IRS tax filing for 2012 ?. . Also, now consider that your two children’s social security numbers are in use by someone else and have been for years. How much would this upset you?….

     

    Especially if you had known that you had a way to get notification on this and take actions to prevent much of this plus more damage to your future lifestyles? This post is written for the purpose of informing  you of the potential awesome consequences of identity theft as well as what you can do to avoid or repair most of the consequences. Authorities say that there is no way to stop the acts of identity theft…you can monitor for occurrences and take actions once it occurs.

    Thus the huge question is how long before you know and what can you do to repair the damage. Hopefully none of this ever happens to you…however these events are occurring every day to 25,000 to 30,000 citizens in the U.S.!  Does this information provoke you to stop and think about the question…”Am I a responsible citizen about my identity…and that of my loved ones”?

    I am very pleased to learn of the CIMIP…an organization described below that is doing outstanding research and recommendations about Identity Management issues in the U.S.

    WELCOME TO CIMIP

    So what actions can you take now? First, understand the seriousness and potential results in case your identity is stolen. I strongly recommend an economical protection and restoration package that I maintain on an ongoing monthly basis. The one that I recommend is an Identity Theft Shield package from what is considered to be the leading  investigative firm around the world….Kroll Investigations. This company provides unique services at very competitive prices…33-39 cents per day for a couple and 4 cents extra for all children…including identity monitoring and restoration. s

    Identity Theft and Unique Restoration By Licensed Investigators


    Identity Theft and Unique Restoration By Licensed Investigators

    Identity Theft and Unique Restoration By Licensed Investigators

    As a former financial advisor, I consistently recommended that individuals and families fully protect themselves with an effective risk management program.  This included health insurance, disability income insurance, automobile insurance, homeowners insurance, renters insurance, umbrella insurance, and life insurance, plus other coverages like long term care,  when needed.

    I now also recommend that every individual, couple, and family including business owners also now have a comprehensive, economical, effective identity theft package..with RESTORATION of IDENTITY. Why? Because you can lose your financial independence… and you absolutely want to protect your name, your assets and your loved ones personal identification. .

    An individual and family can be devastated by the loss of their identity. It may require years of effort to restore identity…if it can be done. The average individual cannot make all the necessary phone calls and personal visits across the U.S. and internationally, as well as the apply the time and energy needed to complete the restoration. Your money and assets can be taken away from you and never recovered.

    The reasons for having strong identity theft protection today also recognizes that there are more incidents of damage to citizens for identity theft than that of all other protection policies that we carry. Unfortunately these incidents of identity theft do not include scams by foreigners. Our federal government has thrown up their hands and will not even help you one iota in case you get involved in a Nigerian, African or other country international scam.

    The Federal Trade Commission reported in March of 2011 that Identity Theft is the greatest consumer complaint of all and has been now for the last 12 years. More than 9 million cases were reported in 2010 and more than 11 million cases occurred in 2011, up 13% from 2010.. Thieves have discovered that identity theft crimes are more lucrative than drug crimes… and far less risky. Unfortunately only about 5% of the perpetrators ever get punished… and they don’t stand the risk of gang warfare.

    Some 30,000+ people in the U.S. wake up each day to learn that their identity has been stolen.

    Anyone can be a victim of identity theft. There is really no way to prevent it from happening. The question is… once stolen, how long will it take for the victim to become aware of the act?   How does one restore their identity in case it has been stolen? How long does identity restoration take? Usually years! Can you restore your identity by someone mailing you the forms for a “do it yourself” approach across the U.S and internationally?  Will all your assets in your bank accounts be accessible to you during the restoration?   Do you believe that you are capable of restoring your own identity if stolen? It is estimated that there are more than 25 agencies across the U.S. and internationally that need contacting in order to restore your identity and to assure that your background is fully restored.

    Many think that identity theft occurs only with Financial Transactions. Unfortunately this is only one of five major types of Identity Theft Loss. Others include Drivers Licenses, Social Security Numbers, Medical Information, and Character/Criminal Actions. For example, children are especially susceptible through the use of their Social Security numbers which are available from hospital and other personal records from time of birth. If a thief can use a social security number for 18 or more years before being discovered then a tremendous amount of damage can be done to that young person’s financial credibility and status.

    Can You Afford An Attorney for Ongoing Legal Services? Yes!

    Can You Afford An Attorney for Ongoing Legal Services? Yes!


    Do you need an affordable Attorney for legal advice and counsel? And by affordable I mean for less than a dollar a day! Would you believe for less than $20 per month? The answer to this question is a resounding yes…not only to provide legal services for you and your family including your children, however also to help protect your assets and your legal rights.  As citizens sometimes we ignore the use of attorneys for three key reasons…1) because they are so expensive at $200+ per hour and up on average and 2) because we just may not know a qualified attorney that you trust for the task to be done and 3) how do you know that they are qualified in your area of need?  So many times we just pay the consequences in case someone takes advantage of us.  As a citizen you deserve better than this…your assets and liberties demand protection.

    Written on the Supreme Court outer walls are the words… “With Liberty and Justice For All!” Unfortunately, we find that legal assistance is not affordable to the average person so therefore a person learns that you can only receive as much justice as you can afford. The average attorney cost is about $285 per hour whereas the average citizen earns some $10 to $50 per hour. This leaves us with the situation that only the wealthy 10% of our population can afford to go to attorneys for any matter and usually maintain a staff of attorneys on retainer. Another 10% of the population may receive free legal aid however the demand is so great for free services that one cannot count on this option. So what do the remaining 80% of the population do in case they need legal services? This article informs you as to where you can obtain high quality legal services on an ongoing monthly basis for less than $20 per month! Interested? Read on.

    As most people are not aware that they can obtain affordable legal services for less than $20 per month they typically are at the mercy of the party that does have attorneys and so therefore do the best that they can under the circumstances.
    By having a qualified attorney staff on retainer we could make better decisions and protect ourselves far better with the advice of a professional attorney. Would you like to have a staff of qualified, competent, trusted affordable attorneys that you could call immediately for any trivial or traumatic reason…without worrying about the cost?

    LegalShield LegalPlan Solutions

    What if you knew about a highly qualified provider lawyer and attorney firm that would work with you for most of your legal needs at a  fee of $17 or $26 per month, and for the legal needs beyond their agreement you received a 25% discount from their usual fees. And their was no contract for a required period of time. However their monthly contract services were so valuable that just for their inclusion of a Will, Living Will, and Health Care Power of Attorney, that this alone was worth $500…and this was a beginning. Other inclusions by the Provider Attorney Firm are unlimited legal advice from 9-5 each weekday and 24/7 coverage for emergency issues. Your membership card provides you with 24/7 coverage to assure your Miranda Rights with a live attorney. And these are a beginning to the services that provide some 80% of the legal services that you need. For the remainder the Provider Attorney firm offers their services at a 25% discount. You can begin these services immediately by filling out the information at the following website…    

    After completing the information requested on this site within 24-36 hours you will be provided with your membership number that entitles you to full access to all legal services
