Here’s a checklist for the best identity theft protection services. Unless the program you choose has these three features, you are not getting what you deserve. There are a number of identity theft protection programs out there, but how do you know which one will work out for you best?
First of all, you should be able to “try before you buy.” In other words, a 30 day free trial period will let you know whether the service provides the security you need to go forward with the paid program. Watch out for companies with free trials that only last 7 days. This doesn’t give you enough time to evaluate the service. A 30 day period allows the full range of services offered to be evaluated.
Second, you want a monthy option. Don’t get locked into a 3 month block. You should be able to cancel when you want to. Monthly programs start at under $20. Of course, if you do find that the service works long term, you should get a discount for purchasing a long term contract so the averaged monthly fee can be less than $13.
The company should do “whatever it takes” to get your identity back. This includes clearing all records and taking the financial obligations on for whatever was lost.
9 million Americans will have their identities stolen this year. While you can take some measures to help prevent identity theft, the problem is simply too big to handle alone. That’s why you need the best identity theft protection program available.
