With another high profile identity theft case in the news, everyone should think about how to protect themselves from potential losses. There are many services out there that claim to protect you, but they’re often expensive. RocketLawyer.com™ helps with the Identity Theft Legal Center™, which is full of free legal help such as the Easy Credit Freeze™, and more than 40 other free legal documents and letters for identity theft protection and recovery.
An Easy Credit Freeze completely locks down access to your credit report, making it practically impossible for someone to take out new credit under your name. If you have reason to believe that you are at high risk for identity theft, or if you have already been a victim, you should consider getting an Easy Credit Freeze. However, keep in mind that it will make getting credit much more difficult – not only for any potential thief, but for you as well. Still, for many, this inconvenience is worth it for the peace of mind it offers.
How can a lawyer help with identity theft?
“Identity theft is always a trying and difficult experience,” said Attorney Ryan J. Vlasak. “Victims of identity theft should know that they may have claims against not only the perpetrators of identity theft, but also against purported creditors attempting to collect debts that were fraudulently incurred. A consumer rights attorney can help victims of identity theft handle obstreperous creditors and expunge fraudulent debts.”
