Never had a problem, just trying to justify the $300 year.

That is pretty funny. I had heard their ads and wondered if they actually did anything for the customer.

Most people know LifeLock as a scam that tried to get advancement through funding politicians and still have many many ads on Fox stations. There are basic things to do regarding identity thefts and research will put those in sequence without needing something like LifeLock. The LifeLock people need to be in jail.

Why do I think with the millions he has probably made scamming people he can probably restore his own good credit?

Couldn't have happened to a more deserving person I think

I was just thinking the other day that the BANKS should offer this service; free; as a SERVICE.

How many large corporations, banks and governments have been hacked? Many, many....They have a few more coin for computer security than me and they still get hacked. HTF am I supposed to do this?? Oh, sorry...I have a STRONG password....Get real.

Banks should back up your money no questions....none of this deductible stuff either.

Speaking of crime, we are currently plagued by gangs of detergent thieves. At least it's a clean crime.

LifeLock was one of Rush Limbaugh's favorite advertisers, since they were one of onlly two left backing his show after his most famous outburst.

I sent that link to a friend who wrote this back:

I've said for a while that the whole identity theft thing is the wrong way to think about this. Thieves didn't steal anything from individuals, companies allowed them to open credit accounts without properly proving their identity, and then come after the misidentified individuals for the debt. We should be regulating how you can identify yourself. Hint: it should involve any easily obtained info.

Did he mean "it shouldn't involve any easily obtained info" ?

edit: the title should have had a question mark
