Did you receive a 'data breach or identity compromise' notification letter lately?
In 2006, 1 in 10 Americans received a letter from a U.S. company saying their personal data was somehow lost.
In 2007, over 23 million adults received a data breach notification letter from firms reporting the loss of personal data, affecting millions of hard-working Americans whose identity may now be compromised.
What will 2008 bring us?
Since most of those companies sending out notification letters offer at most a year's worth or credit monitoring services, what happens when the service expires? Are you ready to spend $150 a year from now on to monitor a problem someone else created for you?
We think identity theft insurance is a great product for year-round peace of mind. It's like car insurance - you hope you never have to use it, but are glad you have it when you need it most.
