I had an identity theft issue, and had I not had this coverage, I don't know what would have happened
Southaven, MS (PRWEB) May 27, 2008
Darrell Hopper has opened http://www.AbateIdentityTheft.com to help customers fight back against the growing threat of identity fraud. "I started investigating the area of identity theft protection, and I did a lot of studying with the Institute of Fraud Risk Management," explains Darrell, who is dedicated to knowing the facts about his business. "IFRM has an area in identity theft, because that's probably the biggest growing crime in the world -- it's certainly the fastest-growing in the US. I was looking to get into a market where I could be a help to people."
Since opening his site in August, Darrell has gone to work with businesses and individuals, helping to limit risk factors in identity theft while also providing multi-level resolution in case of a fraud issue. "I have 35 years of business-to-business experience, and companies don't realize what a high vulnerability they have with all of the data they maintain," he explains. "For the last 2 years I have been working with businesses in the Memphis, Tennessee, area, helping businesses understand what their risks are and showing them ways to minimize their liability."
While focusing on helping businesses is fulfilling, Darrell is looking to focus more on helping consumers protect themselves. He has even opened a blog at http://www.AbateIdentityTheftBlog.com to give tips and explanations about his services. "I want to do something on the individual site, thus the web site," he explains. "I really enjoy dialog, which is why I've opened my blog. I hope to post daily, answering questions people may have -- whether they're buying products or not. The blog is there for me to interact with people and give them some direction. It's a whole lot more than just a credit card issue; most of the advertising on television focuses on credit cards, and most of the blogs I've been to focus on financial identity theft. It goes well beyond that one issue."
Most important to Darrell is the proof behind his system -- his own experience. "I had an identity theft issue, and had I not had this coverage, I don't know what would have happened," he says.
