Is Someone Using Your Social Security Number?

The tech company Trusted ID, which launched IDFreeze last year to help protect people from identity theft, released their second product this month – Stolen ID Search.

At no cost, you type a social security or credit card number into the search box and Trusted ID will tell you if it is published on the Internet. The information that powers StolenID Search is found online, by looking in places where ID thiefs typically trade or store this kind of information. All information behind StolenID search is publicly available, but not in places where you, or even search engines such as Yahoo and Google, would look.

If it turns out that your Social Security or credit card numbers are on the Internet, Trusted ID will try to sell you their IDFreeze product to help you get control over your information.

Now, the big question is whether you think it’s wise to type in your Social Security number or credit card number at a Web site where hackers could potentially get to it. Interesting question.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
