MyIDCare saves you from having to proactively monitor your credit and financial statements, and removes the need for you to regularly check in with any institutions who have personally identifying information on you - like banks, healthcare professionals, insurance companies, or educational institutions. Should identity theft occur, MyIDCare can dramatically reduce your hours spent and stress experienced. Every one of our members is matched with a certified protection professional as soon as they reach out to MyIDCare. This means that when you call us, you’re always connected with the same person who, over time, gets to know your individual situation. No repeating yourself again and again to different customer service representatives. It also prevents details from falling through the cracks, and enables our professionals to get a big picture view of what’s happening – vital to finding patterns and getting to the root of identity theft.
Without our help, you could burn through countless hours researching identity theft topics to try to determine what’s happening and then reaching out to and waiting to hear back from various organizations. Meanwhile the extent of the theft could be growing at a rate you can’t keep up with. “The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) tracks identity theft statistics, helps victims, and coordinates responses by various governmental agencies. They estimate that recovering from identity theft takes an average of six months and 200 hours of work.” Child identity fraud takes an estimated 334 days to detect and 44 hours to resolve, according to Javelin’s Child Identity Fraud Survey Report.
