Does anyone use an anti-identity theft service?
A few years ago someone got a hold of my debit card # and made a number of chargers online. It took me a few weeks to realize it (multiple small charges), but when I did I went to the bank and it was settled. I filled out some paperwork and the money was returned.
Well I got the call again Friday. Fortunately this time the bank picked up on it within a couple of hours. The charge was only $50 and again I am being credited that amount. I don't know how the bank was able to pick up on it so quickly, but bravo to them.
Anyway, my opinion has always been let the credit card companies handle the security end. That's one of the advantages to using a credit/debit card. But after this second attack im feeling all dirty like, so I am reconsidering. Even with the bank reacting so quickly.
Does anyone use an anti-identity theft service? If so, who do you use?
