Identity Theft & Fraud Protection
What's the best way to stop identity theft? Credit card fraud protection. As your old football coach used to say, the best offense is a good defense. Identity theft protection products act as insurance and protection against identity thieves, so you can take comfort in knowing that fraudulent charges will NOT count against your bank account or your credit score.
While many credit card companies offer fraud protection guarantees, the practice isn't yet universal. If you're not sure your credit card includes 0% liability against fraud, contact your credit card company (or research your card using Creditnet) and find out before your next trip abroad.
If you conclude that you're not currently protected against fraud or identity theft, we highly recommend applying to the recommended fraud protection products we offer above.
How can Identity Theft products save you from fraudulent charges?
For example, Identity Guard® (listed above) offers a number of services used for the sole purpose of protecting your identity. You'll be insured up to $1,000,000 on fraudulent charges, on-the-go protection that will give you access to up $2,000 in emergency cash and computer protection software with 100% keystroke encryption. Plus, the three major credit bureaus will monitor your identity daily, and if anything slips through the cracks they guarantee that you'll get your money back. This is a must if you don't currently have ID theft protection through your credit card company.
