I Use LifeLock to Protect against Identity Theft

I had seen a news report about LifeLock. The CEO gave out his social security number on TV! The reporter tried to use it to open new accounts and couldn’t. I wasn’t sure that I needed this service. Heck, I’m a very careful guy—ask any of my family and friends. Okay so maybe having locked mailboxes, shredding all docs, having a premium locks and alarm system, owning two German Sheps, having spot lights and the machine gun foxhole in the front yard is a *little* much.  :o)

Later, I heard from the Army and then the VA that they had lost control of my private information. Sigh, I was mad. Aaron Freeman’s company wrote us retired military guys and offered us a discount on the first few years of the service so I signed up. I mean reducing the number of credit cards I own, carefully scouring my monthly credit card statements, checking my credit takes a lot of time. (Still have to do that though.)

But I do recommend to my friends and family to subscribe to this service. I was reminded of this service last week when a friend of mine got their purse stolen out of their cars while on vacation. Here we go again…
