Identity Theft Protection Starts With You: Learn How With a Free E-Book
21-Jul-2012 | News-Press Release
Tampa, FL (prsafe ) July 19, 2012 - Over 8 million people every year are affected by identity theft at an overall cost of almost $40 billion. Many people believe that the chances of it happening to them are slim, considering that ID theft occurs to just over 1% of the global population. According to Jeremy Erikson, author of the new and free e-book Identity Theft Report: A Step-By-Step Guide to Protecting Your Identity, everyone should make sure they have protections in place just in case the unthinkable happens to them.
"By taking some basic protections on our own and employing professionals to help us monitor our identity, you can take the unthinkable and make it a lot less likely," says Erikson.
"I created this e-book so that people could better understand what identity theft is and what is involved in restoring your good name. Most people don't realize what an involved process it is to recover from identity theft," says Erikson.
The 146-page e-book covers in great detail how identity theft occurs, the different types of ID theft and related fraud, proactive identity theft prevention strategies as well as reviews of the best identity theft protection agencies.
Erikson says that the cost of a personal identity theft protection plan for yourself and your family is a cost effective means of preventing and recovering from identity theft. "Most identity theft protection agencies offer at least a $1 million insurance policy to help pay for the costs of recovering from identity theft," says Erikson. "A few agencies offer insurance policies that offer no cap whatsoever on the amount that it takes to recover from identity theft. This helps you suffer little to no financial loss should you become a victim, as well as help you recover much more quickly."
With A Step-By-Step Guide to Protecting Your Identity, Erikson also offers readers some practical advice to help eliminate the worry of identity theft from their lives. "Preventing identity theft starts with what you can do today, such as not carrying your Social Security number with you, verifying the identity of corporations asking for your personal identification, and insuring any information you do give a business is done through a secured website," advises Erikson. "That in itself can prevent a lot of identity thefts from occurring."
Why stress the importance of signing up with a professional service to protect your identity? "Because protecting your identity on your own with the modern way information moves is a full time job," says Erikson. "With a cost effective identity theft protection plan, you can have your identity and your credit monitored full time for theft threats. This allows you to be proactive against a thief instead of reactive, thus saving plenty of time and money for both a potential victim and any affected businesses a thief might target."
