These days, you cannot be too careful about your personal information. Identity theft protection is an absolute must! My husband and I are very careful about all of our personal information, because we have both had incidences where information was stolen from us.
At this point in our lives, neither of us has any credit cards - except debt cards, and we try to pay cash for most everything we purchase. We bought ourselves a nice paper shredder and don't throw anything in the regular trash that would have any personal information on it. Unfortunately, paper isn't the only thing out there where our personal information is kept. No matter how much you try to protect yourself, there will always be information in the "cyber-sphere" that can be "stolen."
That is where IdentityHawk can be of assistance. They offer a number of ways to protect your personal information, including Identity Theft Insurance, Comprehensive Alerts, and 24/7 Identity Security Scanning - just to name a few.
In the future, we will probably look into getting something to help protect us from identity theft and this will probably be our first stop. I have a feeling it will just get easier and easier for the people that commit this crime to do it.
