LifeLock helps people everyday, but it’s not everyday you get a real life example of someone, in the news, who has LifeLock and uses it to protect themselves from Identity theft. Usually you hear about this person or that person becoming a victim of identity theft but never the person who fights back. This is a great story that shows the effectiveness of LifeLock for one Woman in Tulsa OK.
A woman in Tulsa OK, first became aware of her identity theft when LifeLock sent her an alert that she had filled out two cell phone applications one for AT&T and another for Verizon. She was able to use LifeLock to cancel those applications, and She thought she had taken care of it but she was wrong.
A short while later she came home in the middle of the day to find a note on her door which had instructions to the delivery man to leave the packages at the door. She realized that the identity thieves had been to her house and were waiting to pickup their phones they had tried to buy with her identity and credit. She waited for the delivery man and refused the packages. She then, with the help of her neighbors, devised a plan to leave fake packages on the doorstep to catch the crooks. They waited and got the license plate numbers of a late 90′s Acura sedan that soon rolled up to pick them up. They then relaid this information to the police who are on the look out.
I like stories like these. Ones that end with the victims turning on the thieves that thought they were going to take advantage of them. Made my day way to go woman with LifeLock!
