Who is Selling Your Identity Online!

Now you can monitor 10,000 underground websites to find out when someone tries to sell your private information online!

If your identity is stolen, you can spend hundreds of hours cleaning up your credit and struggling to get back your good name. That's because stolen identities are sold in underground Websites and used up to 30 times. Most victims only discover the theft after they've been turned down for a loan or contacted by a collection agency long after the damage has been done. You may already be a victim, many times over, and not even know it. A new free online service promises to can catch the criminal in the act of selling your good name.

LifeLock, the leading identity theft protection service has added new additional layers of sophisticated, proactive identity theft protection that will alert you when criminals attempt to sell your identity online. The additional protections are included with LifeLock membership and are offered at no additional charge for existing or new members.

The company recently rolled out eReconTM, a regular patrol of over 10,000 websites where consumers’ information is being illegally sold and traded. eReconTM searches these websites for the Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, driver’s license numbers and email addresses of LifeLock members.

Additionally, the United States Postal Service reports that 45 million change-of-address forms are filed annually. These change of address forms can be used by identity thieves to redirect mail to obtain personal information for the purpose of identity theft. That’s why, in addition to the daily online scouring of the internet through eRecon, LifeLock recently introduced TrueAddress™. The company's new TrueAddress service searches to see if members have had a change of address form filed and alert them if there are changes.

“LifeLock has been using readily available tools to provide complete identity theft protection. Today, we introduce an additional layer of protection that can only be obtained through advanced Internet technology,” said Davis. “This new service provides us a broad, comprehensive look into areas where personal information is often compromised. This protective layer is something that most consumers cannot do for themselves and we are proud to offer it now – at no additional cost.”
