Jersey City, NJ, October 21, 2008 - A quickly snatched wallet or hijacked password are all a thief needs to steal an identity. Now Comodo offers ID TheftSmart, which provides an ongoing monitoring service that will alert subscribers to five types of credit activity in their credit file commonly associated with identity theft.
With their victim's personal information, thieves can apply for credit and government documents, forging whole new identities. In response, victims of identity theft spend agonizing hours tracing and disputing the thieves' work.
ID TheftSmart emails reports if a thief attempts to open a credit line in the subscriber's name. In addition, should you ever become a victim, a licensed personal investigator will assist you in restoring your credit and identity to its pre-theft status.
More than 9 million Americans fall victim to identity theft each year according to a Federal Trade Commission 2007 Report. With Comodo offering ID TheftSmart to safeguard your identity, you'll never have to walk alone.
