FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 4, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saveology.com, a leading comparison shopping portal focusing on saving consumers money on moving and home services, has launched ID Guard under its WizardGuard business link. Every now and then you will find commercials which poke fun at the affects of identity theft, but for victims of this crime, there is nothing funny about the experience. The latest offering, ID Guard will assist to help eliminate identity theft before it gets too late. 

According to IndentityTheft.info, approximately 15 million U.S. residents have their identities used fraudulently each year with financial losses totaling upwards of $50 billion. Identity theft and identity fraud are two of the most frequent and costly crimes affecting Americans. These occur when someone's identifying information is used without authority to commit fraud. By having your social security information compromised, consumers have not only suffered misfortune in credit ratings, and reputations due to identity theft, but have been refused loans, lost educational opportunities, job offers, and possibly arrested for crimes they did not commit.

ID Guard protects your identity by implementing the following:

  • Alert - Safeguard your accounts by receiving alerts any time a third-party attempts to access your credit.
  • Protect - Monitor your accounts and lessen the threat by removing your information from junk mail circulation to prevent internet fraud.
  • Repair and Recover – ID Guard will help prevent predators from opening accounts using your information and assist you in the recovery process of up to $1 million if you become a victim, for less than $10 each month.  

Cybercriminals and identity thieves target unknowing victims by using these statistics, every individual or business is vulnerable to attack when it comes to personal or corporate information, products and services. As identity theft continues to rise, determining the smartest way to protect financial and personal data is where ID Guard can help. By joining ID Guard, members have the peace of mind by knowing there is a team working to repair the damage, prevent additional losses, and also offer a Service Guarantee to provide up to $1 million if incidents occur to current ID Armor members.
