Many of those 10 suggestions are helpful, however, any article that leaves the same impression as the funny Citibank commercials is a dis-service to the readers. Leaving the impression that credit related identity theft is the only type of identity theft is not ideal since less that 40% is credit related. There are five types of id theft. Most realists will agree there is no such thing a secret information. After all, did you never complete an information sheet at a doctor's or veteranarian's office or credit app at a car dealership? Consider their security? There is a solution provided by only one program on the market today.
If we can't prevent id theft, the best protection is immediate notification of a problem and an actual restoration service to repair the damage. I found the "Identity Theft Shield" by Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc. combined with a family or business pre-paid legal plan to be the perfect solution. When (not if) we become an id theft victim we will need help to reverse the damage and protect from our increased risk of a secondary attack. You can review the details I found at http://plan-info.net and see for yourself. By combining daily monitoring, professional restoration service, legal defense, and unlimited legal consultations we can become empowered and don't need to worry.
