Moving forward we want to make sure you are being proactive instead of reactive. That being said, we recommend getting in touch with our RamseyTrusted provider, Zander Insurance, to get identity theft insurance in place. Once you’re a victim of ID theft, you’re at a higher risk of being a victim again in the future. While Zander cannot assist with any ID theft event that occurred before a plan was in place, they can offer you access to several resources to help guide you through what's next.
It is important to note that being a part of a data breach does not make you a victim of ID theft. Your information being compromised by a data breach does put you more at risk but, until an ID thief actually uses your information fraudulently, you have not been victimized.
A membership with Zander ID Theft not only provides you with unlimited recovery services to clear up fraud when you are a victim, but it also monitors and alerts you of suspicious activity, provides $1 million in stolen funds and expense reimbursement, and includes lost wallet protection services – just to name a few benefits!
