A company called Lifelock has been getting a lot of attention for its generous and confident ID Theft Prevention plan.
Lifelock boasts a $1 million service guarantee that it will protect your identity and money. A membership costs about $110 a year and Lifelock works with credit bureaus to set free fraud alerts on your behalf, checks in with the bureaus every 90 days, requests that your name be removed from preapproved credit-card and junk-mail lists and offers a complicated identity monitoring package. Its motto is "We will do whatever it takes to help you recover your good name and we will spend up to $1 million to do it."
More than 65 percent of SavvySugar readers have had their credit information compromised before so I assume many of you have researched protection services. Have you tried any?
