Piracy on the Internet is big business. Hackers storm the security walls of banks and other places of business to secure personal records. These may be worth as much as one dollar per record (e.g. your Social Security number) and the thieves can make hundreds of thousands of dollars in a given heist. Even though large retail companies will assure consumers of security, there is still some major risks. Identity protection offered by a group legal plan is critical for safeguarding credit in the modern economy.
Your Identity Is a Marketable Product.
People worry about hackers setting up phony credit cards but that is just the tip of the iceberg. There is an extensive underworld economy where your information is a product in demand. Thieves will sell their loot to spammers and botnet operators who will in turn take advantage of the information. Phishing schemes have been used to trick elderly into providing even more personal information, and email addresses are used for pay per click advertising schemes. Definitely the worst that can happen to you is your credit card being used for massive purchases. The original thief can do it or an organized crime ring which has purchased your identity. Trying to find the culprits is going be difficult and restoring your credit rating is going to be time-consuming. These hazards can be handled by group legal services that include ID theft protection and credit monitoring.
What Such Group Legal Plan Benefits Must Have
When thinking about ID theft protection and credit monitoring as group legal services to offer, the benefit has to be very comprehensive. It must include reports from credit monitoring bureaus, excellent customer service, and daily monitoring of credit card activity. Knowing immediately if credit cards are being abused by an outside party will permit the victim to start immediately with corrective action.
