Does ID TheftSmart prevent identity theft?
No identity theft program or service can guarantee you will never be a victim of identity theft. What ID TheftSmart can deliver is continuous credit monitoring that alerts you as soon as there is questionable credit activity in your name, such as applying for a new credit card or loan, a change of address, etc. The earlier you discover suspicious activity, the less damage an identity thief can do.
If I know I have had an ID Theft incident prior to enrolling in ID TheftSmart, can I still enroll and have the incident covered?
If either the victim had knowledge of, or reasonably should have had knowledge of, the pre-existing stolen identity event based on the information provided to them prior to enrollment in the program, such an event or the consequences caused by it are not covered by ID TheftSmart.
How does ID TheftSmart identity restoration work?
If you suspect you have become a victim of identity theft, simply call the toll-free number on your ID TheftSmart membership card. Kroll's professional licensed investigators will do most of the difficult work needed to restore your name and credit to pre-event status as accurately, completely, and quickly as possible.
You will be assigned a dedicated licensed investigator who will work your case through the entire identity theft restoration process. In order to receive the full benefit of enhanced identity theft restoration, you will be asked to sign and return a limited power of attorney that provides your investigator the legal rights to become your advocate and work on your behalf.
How long does identity restoration take?
Identity restoration can take anywhere from a few months, to a year or more, depending on how extensive the identity fraud is and how in-depth Kroll's investigators must go to get it corrected.
Your case is not closed until your restoration is complete to your satisfaction and Kroll receives verification that your issue is resolved.
If it could take months to restore my identity, do I have to maintain my ID TheftSmart membership during the restoration period?
Membership must be maintained throughout the restoration period.
How do identity thieves steal my personal information?
Identity thieves access your personal information in a number of traditional ways, such as stealing mail, rummaging through trash, or stealing a purse or wallet. Some identity thieves can access personal information you share on the internet by hacking into databases, email accounts, online and mobile banking, or posing as a company you do business with- informing you there is a problem with your account.
