Lifelock???

I'm sure you guys have heard of Lifelock... the lock tight social security/identity theft proctection service. I'm sure you've seen this .

In a nutshell...you pay $10 per month to have Lifelock call a credit bureau to place a flag on your account...something that you can do yourself.

Interesting story about the founder:

I have a prepaid legal plan that includes an identity theft shield ($26/mo for the legal plan and $12/mo for the id theft) that monitors all three bureaus and has a contract with Kroll to restore it should I become a victim. I think it differs by state but those were the terms for Texas users.

The service itself is ingenious, getting people to pay $10 per month to contact a single credit bureau once every three months to put a flag on your account. (It's required by law that the bureau contacted, contact the other bureaus on your behalf.)

I love that we live in a country where you can file bankruptcy 3 times, get thrown in jail and still come out on top!
