50 Reasons to Join Legal Shield
17 million Americans will have their identity misused or stolen each year
Identity thieves target everyone, from children to seniors, and it’s getting worse. Most people don’t find out they’re victims until the damage is done.
ID Shield, offered through Kroll, the world’s leading independent risk consultant, enables you to protect your identity and good name. Members have unlimited access to identity consultation services provided by Kroll's Licensed Investigators. The Investigator will advise members on best practices for identity management tailored to the member's specific situation and should there be an identity theft event, the investigator will recommend that a case be opened for restoration.
ID Shield not only empowers you through education and best practices, but is pro-active in monitoring for breaches.
