Personal emails are not as secure as you might think. The same goes for personal information, including bank accounts and credit cards. The hacking stories you read in the newspaper do not just affect politicians. They can affect even an ordinary citizen, and the danger is quite real. Besides having a group legal plan, employers ought to consider the possibility of having protection against identity theft offered to staff.
Identity Theft is a Serious Situation
Identity theft can strike from anywhere. It doesn’t necessarily have to be on the Internet. Anyone can look over your shoulder while using your credit card, or making a withdrawal from a debit machine. Once the thief has information, that person utilizes the data for all kinds of mischief.
Professional hackers are not going to be sending information to WikiLeaks. Instead, they will bundle data into marketable packages, which they will sell to professional criminals. These felons will, in turn, conduct a raid on bank accounts and use credit card information to create bogus cards. Those cards are maxed out immediately, and the victim of the original crime will suspect nothing until the end of the month. That is when the financial statements come in, and a person discovers the extent of the damage. Repairing the damage may take months. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services recognizes the danger of identity theft. We provide in addition to a group legal plan benefits an identity theft program which helps.
It is only human nature to panic if identity theft occurs. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services wants to end this kind of anxiety quickly. Our identity theft prevention includes a ToolKit to address the problem directly. This information includes contact numbers of the major credit reporting bureaus. There also is guidance on how to fill out affidavits and reconstruct financial integrity. It is a beginning and Countrywide offers even more.
