I am the kind of person who really likes to protect people. When any of my clients has an issue with their Medicare insurance, I want them to know they can call me to help them resolve their issues:

This is why I have a certain passion toward protecting yourself against identity theft.

Identity theft is one of the leading crimes in the world. With scams happening right and left, it’s hard to know who to trust. Does Microsoft really know when you have a software problem and send you a blue screen to call them? Does the IRS really make threatening calls to scare you half to death? The answer is an overwhelming NO.

Call their bluff. Rather than believing a caller or a pop up message on your computer, search out the company’s main number and give them a call to see if they really are trying to get in touch with you.

With the holidays just past and tax season ramping up, be on high alert. Documents are flying through the mail and thieves will do whatever they can to get their hands on your tax return so file early.

Identity Theft Protection plans are great. I have compared a variety of carriers and found that I really like the services from IDShield. They offer monitoring of all areas of your identity, consultation services when you have questions, and the best part is having a licensed private investigator to put the pieces back together for you when identity theft occurs.
