Trust Guard was featured in a September 14th, 2009 SmartMoney.com article titled, "3 Ways to Thwart ID Thieves at the Mall." In the article, author Neil Parmar writes about the rise in identity theft and offers different measures consumers can take to protect themselves from breaches in consumer data. Parmar writes about a few ways to safeguard credit card information when shopping on the Internet. He suggests that consumers look for a certified safety seal, like the Trust Guard seal, before making a purchase online.
The article suggests that consumers need to take preventative measures against the rise in identity theft and consumer fraud in recent years due, in part, to the current economy. The SmartMoney.com article states, "With more than 70 retailers and payment processors since 2006 reporting breached customer data, it's no surprise consumers look for certified safety seals like VeriSign and Trust Guard on retail Web sites."
