St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) September 26, 2008
Identity Theft Protection Pro, LLC. launched the One ID Pro Blog to increase awareness of the true nature and general risks associated with identity theft. Many Americans don't understand or severely underestimate their risk of becoming a victim of identity theft. One ID Pro Blog delivers useful tips, facts and statistics in a non-intrusive way - providing a free, continually updated educational resource about identity theft.
Authored by industry experts, the posts on One ID Pro Blog leverage strengths, developed in the delivery of identity theft protection, to provide free resources such as education and insight as to the various types of identity theft. Other blog posts include prevention tips designed to reduce a person's risk of becoming a victim of identity theft along with recovery tips and news about large data breaches.
"Even though identity theft cannot be fully prevented, we believe that knowledge is power and it's the only way of fighting back. For this very reason One ID Pro Blog was born. There you may learn about everything from how to spot a phishing scam to everyday habits that expose you to the thieves," says Julie Knubley, Blog Author and Manager - Solus Identity Theft Protection.
Additional resources, on the One ID Pro Blog, include links to relevant websites supported by various government agencies. Some of these links deliver free services designed to help consumers by eliminating offers of pre-approved credit or to decrease annoying telephone calls from telemarketers. Both of these steps reduce personal information from being exposed to those that would otherwise seek to use that information for fraudulent purposes.
As "Our Story" indicates - it's helpful to understand the landscape, or environment, as it exists today. With the advent of the global economy - supported by the internet and rapidly growing on-line resources - personal information can flash around the world in a blink of an eye - for both legal and illegal purposes. Identity theft can happen any place, any time. A simple example: increased outsourcing has led to personal information being stored and disseminated to all points around the world - rapid technological change forces the continual updating of these data storage devices and systems which exposes data to increased risk for loss or breach.
Through insightful posts, One ID Pro Blog provides numerous examples of the various types of identity theft - describing how and why thieves steal an identity. Additional educational posts provide tips, tools and resources for protection from the significant risks of identity theft.
"Most people do not know much about identity theft, except that it is a huge problem. With education and awareness we can help you fight back against the fastest growing crime in America. By learning more about identity theft you can greatly reduce your risks and take steps to protect yourself from becoming a victim" says Jason Shafer, Blog Author and Manager - Solus Identity Theft Protection.
