It has become clear that Americans need a service that will help them take the necessary precautions to make sure their identities and business interests remain unscathed. IdentityTheft.com and ID Secure are designed as the strongest resources and protection available.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 2, 2008
Oversee.net announced today the launch of IdentityTheft.com, a new comprehensive online destination for consumers and businesses concerned with one of the nation's fastest-growing crimes.
The site includes ID Secure™, the industry's best-in-class theft prevention product. The site and product combined provide the most comprehensive and well-researched identity theft-related material and solutions available today.
According to Javelin Strategy & Research, identity theft has become the fastest growing crime in America, impacting 44.8 million victims in the past five years and nearly 20 million victims in the past two years alone. They also report that thieves strike every 3.5 seconds and cost consumers more than $56 billion annually.
"Data breaches and identity fraud are becoming increasingly prevalent in our society. Research shows that this type of theft has now surpassed drug trafficking as the number one crime in the United States," said Lawrence Ng, CEO of Oversee.net. "It has become clear that Americans need a service that will help them take the necessary precautions to make sure their identities and business interests remain unscathed. IdentityTheft.com and ID Secure are designed as the strongest resources and protection available."
IdentityTheft.com aims to educate both consumers and businesses on ways they can protect themselves. The site provides visitors a combination of expert-generated research, featured blogs written by industry experts, and a community forum that fosters user and Q&A dialogue about security issues affecting them.
The technology behind the ID Secure product -- the most complete identity theft product in the marketplace -- has been reviewed on FOX News, CNN, and ABC World News Tonight. Its features include:
- Credit/Debit Card Monitoring
- Social Security Number Monitoring
- Public Records Report & Ongoing Monitoring Service
- Internet Directory Sweep and Virtual Security
- Resolution, Insurance, Support Services, and Automated Fraud Alerts
ID Secure combines superior web crawling technology and dedicated experts that can pinpoint compromised debit or credit card information, often by combing chat rooms and other venues where thieves trade or sell cardholder information. Additionally, ID Secure monitors up to 10 credit/debit cards, plus social security numbers. Should a member's monitored information become compromised, they will be notified immediately by ID Secure via e-mail and will receive specialized fraud support assistance.
Through comprehensive public information monitoring, ID Secure also provides an overview of members' public records by obtaining, consolidating and formatting data from over 5,000 sources, including real estate, court and legal records, criminal records, bankruptcies, liens and judgments. The Internet Directory Sweep feature monitors consumers' e-mail and mailing addresses and telephone numbers on internet directories, in an effort to inform members with ways to remove information that may lead to personal security breaches.
"Criminals are becoming increasingly savvy in their craft, especially as it relates to digging for personal information online and finding information readily at their fingertips via the Internet," said Ng. "The more we can educate our members as to what personal information is publicly available and ways they can safeguard that information, the less susceptible they will be to these fraudsters."
The site is first of several planned for launch by Oversee in the coming year. Due to the company's strong existing portfolio of digital real estate, its strategy will be to make the best and highest use of its premium domain names to help end users locate and evaluate the products and services they search for online.
