Prize: One winner will receive a one-year subscription to the LifeLock service.
The month of October was declared as National Crime Prevention Month in 1984. October is also the ninth annual for National Cyber Security Awareness Month. The two go hand in hand these days, because many people are victimized by online identity theft everyday. The best time of year is during the holiday season for opportunistic criminals. They know that many people rather save time, money, and hassle by shopping in the comfort of their own home, thus making a purchase via debit or credit card. Services like LifeLock will help minimize your chances of getting your identity stolen, because they lookout for you 24/7.
LifeLock offers three different plans – the basic plan, LifeLock Command, and LifeLock Ultimate. A one-year subscription to the LifeLock service will remove you from pre-approved credit offers (this reduces the risk of identity fraud in your name), monitors criminal websites for illegal trading of personal information, scans national databases for new address information, gives you for additional services such as legal, investigative, and accounting; notifies you of credit and non-credit threats within their extensive network, and much more. Advance membership alerts credit inquiries that appear on your credit reports, patrols for usage of known alternate names, provides enhanced consolidated reporting of threats, to name a few impressive benefits that this excellent service has to offer.
