Every year, millions of people have their identities stolen. When criminals get their hands on somebody’s personal information, they can use it to commit fraud, open new accounts or even take money from their victim’s existing accounts. That can turn into a nightmare for the victim and negatively impact their credit score if the issue isn’t addressed quickly — and that’s why we offer free identity protection tips and tools to all members.
