Did you know that October is National CyberSecurity Awareness Month and National Crime Prevention Month?

This opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time for me. Last month while I was on my Beverly Hills Chihuahua 3 Blogger Trip to LA, my credit card number was stolen. I have had my Paypal account hacked and my wallet stolen before (long ago) so this was not a first time something like this has happened to me. It’s a hassle, trust me! I have heard about LifeLock but never gave it much thought before. When we (my husband and I) were younger we just thought we would deal with it if our credit cards were stolen. But now, we have so much more to loose if our ID’s get stolen or our accounts get hacked. I even get yearly credit reports for not only my husband and myself but for the kids too. It’s sad, but you do read about kids identities being stolen and then you don’t find out until they are a teenager. I was given a free year membership to LifeLock to try, and I just signed up this weekend. Signing up was easy you just need your personal information handy.

Each year around the holidays many of us celebrate the season by making a donation to a charity that’s dear to us. And more than ever most of us are making that donation online, via a credit or debit card. Have you noticed how much more often you’re sharing your credit card info online these days? And for that matter, how much more personal information you’re sharing online?

 

What is LifeLock identity theft protection?

LifeLock identity theft protection is a proactive defense system that monitors your identity and alerts you of potential dangers. Here’s what is included with your membership:

Identity Threat Detection and Alerts – Alerts you whenever LifeLock detects your personal information in fraudulent applications for credit and/or services within their extensive network.*

Lost Wallet Protection – Helps you quickly cancel or replace credit cards from a lost or stolen wallet to help stop fraudulent charges.

LifeLock Membership

Address Change Verification – Notifies you anytime LifeLock detects a change of address associated with your personal information – helping reduce your chances of mail fraud.

Advanced Internet Monitoring – Patrols over 10,000 criminal Internet sites for the illegal selling or trading of your information. If activity is detected, LifeLock will alert you.

Reduced Pre-Approved Credit Offers – Requests your name be removed from pre-approved credit card offer mailing lists. This reduces the possibility of someone rifling through your mail and stealing your personal information.

24/7/365 Member Service – We’re here to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

    I had a credit card number stolen – near as I can figure out, it was someone I handed my card to. So anytime you’re paying with a credit or debit card and you don’t run it through the reader yourself, watch the person like a hawk. It might even be worth it to walk up to the register in a restaurant yourself.

    Someone got a bunch of utilities put in my name awhile back and I ended up paying for a lot of things I didn’t charge up and my credit score was horrifically effected by it and because of that I haven’t been able to get my credit back up to par after all these years. You just have to be more careful with your SS # and personal details. I was neglectful of keeping it safe.

    I never have but just today we got a call from a credit card company and it seems someone was trying to use his credit card. one transaction went through and my husband will get a refund and thank god all other ones were denied or it would have cost a lot, They tried to charge at least 5k
