Privacy group says identity-theft monitoring services may be a waste of money

Many identity-theft monitoring services are overpriced and don't provide full protection against financial fraud, according to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. See entire article at
I agree!

Here' are my comments (and others) on this article:

I agree that credit monitoring services have little to no value. However, prevention and restoration services have more value than given credit for.

The credit bureaus heavily advertise credit monitoring services that are reactive in nature and not preventative. These services give people a false sense of security. They are designed to let you know of a potential problem -after the damage is done!

There's no protection that 100% fool-proofs you against identity theft. Sure you can do some of the preventative steps on your own -but if your life is invaded by an identity thief do you want to repair the damage on your own too? MORE

What do you think?

Protect your identity, time, money (& sanity) before it's too late. If you can't take the time to do so yourself, hire someone who can. There are a lot of companies on the market today who offer various services. Compare the products and service offers, price comparison and determine which company will provide the best value for you.

I am concerned for the tens of millions who will be receiving notices in the mail informing them their information is in the hands of thieves -and may not know what to do. Knowledge (and being proactive) is your best defense.

Id theft is a growing concern and what you have articulately pointed out is how little control we have of our own information and how important it is to be educated and prepared.
