I’m Immune To Identity Theft

I’ve have several individuals tell me they are IMMUNE to identity theft and that identity theft will not happen to them. (God bless them.)  But, even though we can take many precautions to protect ourselves from identity thieves, it is never possible to be fully immune to identity theft.
First of all, these individuals need to know that identity theft is SO much more than a stolen credit card. To discover unauthorized purchases on your credit card is upsetting and inconvenient, however, it is relatively easy to fix.  Many credit card companies have a liability limit of $50.  So, if a thief has charged thousands of dollars to your card, you may have to pay $50 to the credit card company.  But, more often than not, a credit card company simply wipes out any charges that are the result of the credit card fraud. So, I totally understand why many people think they do not need an identity protection and restoration service. 

REAL identity theft, on the other hand, is when a BAD person uses the ACTUAL IDENTITY of WHO YOU ARE.  This includes using YOUR social security number to secure employment or file a false tax return, using YOUR health insurance information and pretending to be you at the doctor or pharmacy, using YOUR identity when committing a crime, or using YOUR driver’s license, making an absolute mess of your REAL life when you realize you are a victim.
You could find out you are a victim of identity theft when you are being arrested for crimes you did NOT commit, being harassed by collection agencies for debts that are NOT yours, or NOT getting a job because your background check shows an outstanding warrant for your arrest in another state you’ve never visited.
HOW would you handle these situations?  WHERE would you begin?  HOW do you prove YOU did NOT commit these crimes?  And, WHY would you want to unravel this mess on your own?  REAL identity theft can cost the victim thousands of dollars and take years to clean up.
