The surest way to prevent identity theft is to maintain crappy credit!
Once crappy credit is obtained, use cash and avoid being in debt. Life is better and no one can use your identity for credit.

Well, I mostly agree with you. The only problem is you want to make sure you have a house first.

You won't get enough money together to get a nice home without the credit (in most cases).

I have to say that I was a cash only use guy until I got married. Then all hell broke out once she started messing around. Lol The amazing thing is my credit score actuall went up-somehow. Oh well.

One thing for sure is that I won't be using Lifelock.

LOL! Yeah, that would be funny either way. I think they only played one season as I have not seen them since.

I have seen a bunch of IT Jobs at their company, which is located on Tempe Town Lake...I was going to apply, but after this...nah, I will pass!

See that is the thing. You are laying 100% of the blame on LifeLock, and none on the person (the CEO) who was protected.

There have been two members including myself who have explained the LifeLock is doing a good job. Another member explained how to do what LifeLock is doing to get the same results. For me same with the other poster it is easier to pay and let someone else do the paper work while I deal with the hassle of getting a loan.

As another poster said nothing is 100% secure no matter how tight you think you have something locked up someone can find a way to take it.

Now as for the CEO he plastered his SS number all over the place. His number was used because of this. Myself and the other poster as well as numerous others using LifeLock do not post our SS numbers and we are enjoying an extra bit of security.

Also we have to look at the fact that the CEOs SS number has only been stolen 13 times. How many times do you suppose there was an attempt though? You think only 13 people have ever tried to use his SS number seeing that it was plastered all over? I would wager that number is nearly 100 times greater if not more.

Facts are nothing is 100% secure. Facts are also that he number could have been used far greater times then just 13 if not for the measures that were taken by LifeLock. The smartes thing to do is not plaster your number all over the place.

Either they told him they would cover/protect him 100% or they thought (at first) they had a security measure that was 100% which is not possible.
