Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2010
AskIdentityTheft.com announced today the release of their website, askidentitytheft.com. This website offers a comprehensive, one-stop resource for individuals interested in identity theft prevention, reporting and recovery. From credit monitoring services to prevention tips, askidenititytheft.com can provide the information to move forward with recovering personal identifying information.
The site accommodates users by describing the different types of identity theft, what types of warning flags signal that one may be a victim and what the consumer can do to mitigate the damage. The site promotes a system of consumer education advocating prevention as a consumer’s best defense against identity theft.
A significant increase in identity fraud and theft calls for action, and what better way than to promote a site that provides both information with prevention. The site is dedicated to explaining your prevention options such as how to request a credit freeze or a fraud alert with the major credit bureaus, how to stay safe online, even how to protect your identity when using social media websites.
Monitor, Report and Recover
Other topics of interest to consumers include how to monitor credit reports for identity theft, including the lesser-known consumer specialty reports covered under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. These agencies can arrange to provide consumers with a copy of their medical, employment and check history data, as well as the requests made by creditors and other organizations. Approaching these agencies can make a difference in monitoring your financial, criminal and medical identity.
If the unimaginable should occur, AskIdentityTheft wants our educated consumers to target identity theft at its source by reporting it to the proper authorities and by taking the necessary steps to take back what is rightfully and legally theirs. AskIdentityTheft provides step-by-step reporting instructions and contact information to get people back on track.
Different types of identity theft calls for different types of recovery action. If personal data or information was stolen physically, AskIdentityTheft provides the steps to counter the possibility of fraud and theft before it’s gone beyond a stolen driver’s license.
With the advent of the Internet, identity thieves have become increasingly clever at obtaining personal data. There has never been a better time for users to become vigilant about online security, peer sharing sites and identity theft protection. With askidentitytheft.com consumers become savvier about firewalls, anti-virus protection packages and password security. Every step means a step closer to better educated and discerning web users.
It is our vision that everyone will grow to appreciate, understand and protect their identity with the assistance of our website http://www.askidentitytheft.com.
