TEMPE, Ariz., April 13, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Threats of identity theft continue to evolve, as displayed in recent report issued by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). In 2010, nearly 20% of all consumer complaints to the federal agency were a result of identity theft.  In order to better educate and protect consumers from the threats of this crime, LifeLock, Inc. has joined forces with Cary Hall, ' America's Health Insurance Advocate ®' to provide consumers with a special offer for LifeLock's industry leading identity theft protection services.

"Protecting your identity is as important as protecting your health with a good health insurance policy," said Hall. " LifeLock is the best and the industry leader in identity protection.  My wife Lori and I have been members of LifeLock for the last three years and have never had an identity theft issue as a result."

With his solid reputation and expertise in the field of health care, Cary Hall's powerful drive and dedication to "myth-busting" has established him as a voice of authority informed Americans should consider. In alignment with LifeLock, Hall is calling for consumers to take time to educate themselves about the crime of identity theft and the various tools and techniques available to help protect their personally identifiable information.

"The advocacy that Cary Hall is known for is a perfect pairing for the educational efforts that we deliver," said Steve McGrady, Senior Vice President of Partner Sales with LifeLock. "Cary's passion for championing the best practices allows him to serve consumers on a very personal level and we strongly believe that he will use that same advocacy to educate his audience on the ever-changing identity theft environment."
