Who is Going to Protect You From Cybercrime and Identity Theft?

in Identity-theft

The world is becoming a more dangerous place to live even when are at home and have our doors and windows locked and the blinds pulled down. The world is becoming a harder place to stay safe and away from the criminals who are after our personal information and our money.

Unfortunately, our personal information is everywhere including our doctors and hospital, insurance agencies, credit card companies, banks, mortgage companies, utility companies, and a lot more.

We are vulnerable to all forms of identity theft including medical fraud, drivers licenses, social security benefits fraud, Federal and State tax fraud, passports, 401k, bankruptcy and a whole lot more.

Identity theft increased by Twenty-two percent from 2007 to 2008. One-point-eight million more Americans were impacted by identity theft in 2008 than a year earlier. Total number impacted rose to nearly ten million Americans costing them them $48 billion according to the report.

So I ask you, "Who is going to protect your from cybercrime and Personal id theft?

You can't look to our government to protect you. Heck, they are having enough trouble keeping the bad guys at bay and from stealing sensitive documents. Personally, I wouldn't count on our government to do much to protect you from cybercriminals and personal id theft any time soon.

The identity Theft center tells us only one in 700 identity thieves are ever caught. So, identity theft, for the bad guys, is a pretty safe to commit a crime. Unfortunately, the victim is left with the effects of the crime for many years to come. And, even when a criminal is caught, most Federal and State identity theft and cybercrime laws are weak and don't hand out much punishment compared to the damage done to the victim.

You can't count on corporate America to protect you. With your personal information spread all over the country from one corporation to a doctor's office to a insuance agency to who knows where else it is, it is only a matter of time before a creative hacker get your personal information, too.

So, what is the answer to the question, Who is going to protect you from cybercrime and identity theft?" The answer is it has to begin and end with you. You have to take proactive measures to counter these attacks from these fraudsters.

Whole identity theft protection - this is a new form of identity theft protection that goes beyond the credit protection you see advertised on radio and TV. It proactively protects your whole identity regularly checking for all forms of identity theft in thousands of locations including secret Internet trading places the bad guys hang out in. The service also includes full identity restoration back to pre-theft status.

Managed personal computer service - Again, this is a relatively new form of computer protection. It includes professional grade protection on your computer and unlimited tech support at no additional charge to make sure your computer is free of malware and runs like new.

You need 21st century protection to fight against 21st Century crimes!

You have to take proactive steps to guard against today's cybercriminals. They are more creative and innovative that ever before. It takes a 21st Century form of protection to counteract these bad guys and protect your personal information. You must take action. Don't count on anyone else to do it for you.
