Identity Theft Checklist

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

  

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!

Did you know? As much as 20% of all adults in America fell victim to some sort of Identity Theft in 2013? That is insane. That is 1 in 5. That means that unless you are a total recluse, you know somebody that has fallen victim to some sort of Identity Theft, or even a few people. You might have even been a victim yourself. Look, I know what you are thinking. It would never happen to you, RIGHT? Don’t be so sure. I was a victim for over 6 years before I even knew it. NO JOKE!! And to top it all off, mine was Criminal Identity Theft, the kind where someone else’s crimes end up on your Criminal Background Check. Yep, 7 felonies including Capitol Murder. Over 5000 hours spent trying to clear my name and to be honest with you, even though I have taken all of the necessary steps, some of the crimes still show up on my Criminal Background Check. But enough about me, if you are really that interested my story is all over the internet and all over this website. Just search “John Shelby Identity Theft”.

Do you still think that you are safe? Or are you starting to wonder? Well, here’s a little checklist to know if your Identity is at risk of being stolen or compromised:

IDENTITY THEFT CHECKLIST

1. Do you ever bank online?

 

2. Are you prior military with a VA file?

 

3. Are you on any form of social media?

 

4. Have any of your email accounts ever been “hacked”?

 

5. Have you ever lost or mis-placed your smart-phone, laptop, or other mobile device?

 

6. Did you shop at Target or Nordstrom’s this last holiday season?

 

7. Have you ever received a letter from your bank, hospital, or anyone else notifying you of a security breach? (if you have, 1 in 4 of the recipients of that letter were victims)

 

8. Have you ever been arrested for any reason? That’s how they got me, and my case was dismissed without even having to go to court.

 

9. Shop online?

 

10. Ever lost your wallet or checkbook?

 

11. Ever left your mail in the mailbox overnight? Or even for a weekend retreat? CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE

I would bet that you answered “YES” to at least 1-3 of these. If that is the case, then your identity is at risk. It’s not your fault really. These Identity Thieves are tricky and it really is virtually undefendable. But it sure is a lot of heartache for the victims. The time you have to put in just to fix your credit or reputation is crazy. The average is somewhere around 300 hours of leg-work. And it is so frustrating.

 

That is why Identity Monitoring services are popping up everywhere. It has become a big business, but a necessary one, unfortunately.

 

If you know me or more story, then you know that I have been on a mission to warn others and make people aware of Identity Theft and its effects. For many years it ruined my life. Homelessness, depression, embarrassment, struggles upon struggles. So, I have teamed up with the industry leader LifeLock, and I am proud to say that I have. Oh, I did my research. Admittedly, LifeLock can not protect you from all Identity Theft, but they will catch it early if it happens to you. On top of that, they will do all of the leg-work for you to clear matters up. They have a team of attorneys that specialize in Identity Theft protection and repair, all at your disposal.
