Recognizing this trend, SCU members have the convenience and benefit of a trusted advisor they can turn to for help resolving crises in credit and identity theft.

“SCU highly values and emphasizes the importance of security and identity protection of its membership,” said Rick Hammond, President and CEO, State Credit Union. “Our recently expanded relationship with IDentity Theft 911 will provide SCU members the opportunity to protect themselves with the most comprehensive identity management protection in the industry. We are pleased to offer this tool for protection and peace of mind.”

IDentity Theft 911 Fraud and Credit Monitoring scours billions of identity records—including credit reports and scores and noncredit files, like court records and internet sites—in a round-the-clock pursuit for possible signs of fraud. IDentity Theft 911 fraud specialists provide high-touch service to victims from the initial call through case resolution. Their expertise covers a range of issues, from proactive measures that provide protection to resolution in the case of true identity theft and account takeovers. The fraud specialists work one-on-one with victims and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week until resolution is complete.

“Thieves have shifted their focus from stealing identities for pure financial gain, to committing identity theft to access bank accounts, open utility accounts, and commit tax fraud,” said Matt Cullina, CEO, IDentity Theft 911. “FraudScout® will actively search for any changes in these records that could raise concern. We’re excited SCU has selected us to provide its members with fraud and credit solutions to protect them throughout all facets of life.”
