ID Resolve Identity Theft FAQs
Learn more about how identity theft can impact you and how ID Resolve’s identity theft recovery and restoration support can help.
1. Should I worry about identity theft?
YES! Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes nationwide. Up to 16.7 MILLION Americans are victimized each year, with up to $16.8 BILLION in losses. Suddenly losing YOUR money and YOUR good credit record could cause a legal and financial nightmare.
2. Why is identity theft a bigger problem for people over age 65?
If someone steals your identity and the savings you’ve spent decades building, you simply might not have enough time to rebuild your financial security. That’s where ID Resolve comes in. If you’re victimized, we protect your money, save your time, and restore your peace of mind by helping take care of everything during your identity theft resolution.
3. I don’t have a huge nest egg. Would identity thieves really target me?
It really doesn’t matter how much savings you have. If you have a Social Security number, you’re exactly the type of target identity thieves love. Identity theft can happen to anyone, anytime.
4. Can identity thieves really get loans in my name?
Absolutely. Once thieves have key information such as your Social Security number, they can create documents including fake driver’s licenses that help them open accounts or apply for loans in your name.
5. I’m careful when I used credit cards. Shouldn’t my identity be safe?
Not necessarily. Even if you’re extremely vigilant when you shop locally and online, your information could still be compromised by a data breach at a retailer where you used your card. For instance, major companies such as Target, Home Depot, and Macy’s have been hacked just within the past few years.
6. How hard is identity theft recovery?
Be prepared to invest many hours over the course of months. Phone calls. Follow-up letters. Account monitoring. Communication with banks, loan companies, credit card companies, the Social Security Administration, and credit bureaus. Maybe even filing police reports.
Or you could avoid all those headaches with ID Resolve. Our identity theft experts know who to call, what paperwork to file, and exactly how to follow up to help restore your finances and stop identity thieves in their tracks. And we’ll keep you informed with regular updates along the way.
