Identity theft affects over 11 million people every year. One identity theft typically takes 165 hours to restore (ITRC), and each year there are roughly $54 billion in total losses as a result (Javelin Strategy & Research). Identity theft is when someone, without your permission, uses any of your personal information (credit card, SSN, address, etc.) to commit fraud or other crimes. Identity theft costs millions of Americans time and money every year, and we want to help you avoid being one of them.
