Lincoln, NE (PRWEB) February 26, 2009
Thirty-one percent of identity theft victims are between the ages of 18 and 29, according to a report issued by the Federal Trade Commission. The Protection Store offers a solution to this growing problem with the launch of its brand new product, PrepPROTECT. PrepPROTECT is a comprehensive benefits package offering security and savings to students and parents. The array of benefits includes protection against identity theft, roadside assistance, telephonic medical consults, legal help, and discounts on pharmacy, movies and dining.
"One of the primary concerns of parents is the safety of their children while they are in school. The PrepPROTECT program offers increased safety and peace of mind by safeguarding against dangers such as identity theft, roadside breakdowns and medical issues," commented Mark Graham, CEO of The Protection Store and founder of PrepPROTECT.
One of the many benefits of the PrepPROTECT program is LifeLock. LifeLock is the leader in proactive identity theft protection. Identity theft is a growing concern for all adults but high school and college-aged students may be at even higher risk of having sensitive information stolen. One out of three high school seniors and 78% of college students have credit cards (MoneyCentral.msn.com, Teach Your Teen How to Handle Credit Cards).
A high percentage of identity theft involves an existing credit card, and technology has made it easier than ever to gain access to credit card data. Many reports indicate that young people fail to take even basic precautions to safeguard their information.
"In this economy, families are doing everything possible to protect their dollars. Many are already making enormous sacrifices to educate their children and identity theft is not a problem they can afford. With PrepPROTECT, we addressed both security and economic concerns by designing the service so that it pays for itself with the value added discounts on movies and dining," said Graham.
PrepPROTECT members receive a membership card that provides access to all products in the program. Members pay a low monthly fee which provides fraud and identity theft protection, roadside assistance, legal help, access to a 24-hour, 7 day per week doctor hotline and discounts on pharmacy, movies and dining.
"With PrepPROTECT we addressed the common safety concerns that keep parents awake at night and combined the benefits into one product for a low monthly fee," said Graham.
The PrepPROTECT program can also be sold by campus organizations as a fundraising tool.
