Some call identity theft “the crime of the 21st century.” According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), over 9 million Americans fall victim to identity fraud each year. Your best defense against these staggering statistics is to be proactive in monitoring your credit and debit card purchases and your credit score, and take immediate action.
A second line of defense is your home insurance policy. All companies provide some form of coverage against identity fraud. Limits can be as high as $25,000, depending on the company. Some offer the identity theft coverage as a low cost endorsement to your policy. If you are interested in this coverage, call or email us.
