The holidays are just around the corner, and inboxes across the world are being inundated with news of Black Friday sales. This time of year is an identity thief’s dream! As the number of purchases you make increases, the chance that you’ll notice an unusual charge on your bank statement decreases.
So before you hit the mall (or the Internet, for those of us who prefer Cyber Monday shopping in our pajamas), be sure you know what to look out for. Here are some signs your identity may have been compromised:
- You receive a credit card you didn’t apply for in the mail
- You see charges, withdrawals, or even deposits you didn’t make
- You stop receiving bank/credit card statements
- You receive a statement for a credit card you didn’t open
Unfortunately, you won’t always see these signs – and when you do, it is often too late. The best way to ensure your identity is protected is to purchase a comprehensive ID theft protection plan. Zander ID Theft Solutions looks for these signs for you. If you do become a victim, Zander will restore your identity and reimburse you for up to $1 million in stolen funds and expenses. This holiday season, protect yourself with the smarter, more affordable solution to identity theft.
