LifeLock Identify Theft Protection Plus Giveaway

     It seems like everyone has either had their identity stolen or knows someone that has.  I have been lucky that it has not happened to me, but I have a friend that has gone through it.  It was a horrible experience.  I don't really know how it started, but I do know that he had a really hard time to recover everything.  I know he was lucky that he has a great job with a great salary to help him stay a float as he straightened everything out.  He is still dealing with a few things that stemmed from his stolen identity.  LifeLock is there to help you protect your identity from fraud.

There are different options available:

     LifeLock has a mission to provide relentless protection for their members.  They protect their members against more then just credit fraud.  They send you alerts whenever they detect your personal information is being used for many services, including wireless services, mortgage loans, retail credit, and utilities.  LifeLock is much more then just a credit monitoring system.  LifeLocks works under 5 points of protection, monitoring, scanning, responding, guarantee, and tracking.

     If you become a victim of identify theft while you are a LifeLock member they will spend up to $1 million to hire experts, lawyers, investigators, consultants and whoever else it takes to help you to recover from it.  I have always wondered about this service since I first heard about it and I am happy to try it out.  LifeLock wants to also give one of you a chance to try out their services for free for a year.  This is perfect timing with the Holidays coming up.  It seems that during the holidays the risk of identity theft is higher.

Win it:  One (1) Arizona Mama reader will win a One Year LifeLock membership.  (winner must be a US resident)
