Stop Talking About Breaches and Hacks and Start Restoring Actual Identities

Yes, the IRS breach is much worse than we thought, affecting nearly three times as many taxpayers’ identities as originally reported. And the hackers outing the identities of 32 million users of the infamous AshleyMadison.com, a website that helps married people have affairs, has revealed the Internet’s underbelly – the “dark Web” – is far uglier than imagined.

But what about the actual identities of those individuals affected by these and countless other hacks, breaches and situations where their identity is stolen? What can be done to restore an individual’s name and identity?

“Instead of asking why this is happening and why is it worse than initially thought, let’s talk about what we can do about it,” said Jeff Bell, CEO of LegalShield.LegalShield

“Nothing is 100 percent preventable, however, people need to know whatever happens there are ways they can restore their identity. We have Licensed Private Investigators on the job to do whatever it takes – including working the dark Web – to restore your good name,” Bell continued.

LegalShield partnered with Kroll, the global leader in risk mitigation and response solutions, to launch IDShield as the premier identity theft protection and restoration service in the country. IDShield is the only service that provides consumers with direct access to Kroll’s team of Licensed Private Investigators.

Kroll’s Licensed Private Investigators bring valuable insight and experience from a wide range of backgrounds. The investigators are full-time employees, coming from backgrounds such as law enforcement, counseling, banking, insurance, debt collection and more.

“Identity theft has been the number one consumer complaint filed with the Federal Trade Commission for 15 years straight,” Bell said. “These recent breaches prove it’s not only here to stay, but it could get worse. And victims are spending an exorbitant amount of time and money to deal with it.”IDShield Logo

The danger is no longer limited to credit card theft, but to the destruction of your entire identity. Even your children’s personal information is at risk; long before they have a credit card, their Social Security number can be stolen by thieves.

“People need to focus on protecting themselves for when – not if – their identity will be compromised,” Bell said.

IDShield members can rest assured they will be protected by pre-emptive monitoring, a $5 million service guarantee, and 24/7/365 emergency access to Kroll investigators. In addition, consumers can download an IDShield mobile app for their smartphone or tablet, providing one-click access to a U.S.-based advisor for assistance in handling both emergency and nonemergency issues.

Leading Business of the Month – Myrtle Beach Pelicans

ConMBPelicansgratulations to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans for being named Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce’s March 2016 Leading Business of the Month
sponsored by South State Bank!

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans have been a member of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce since February 1998.

In 1998, a new home for a new ballclub was built and dubbed Myrtle Beach’s “Field of Dreams.” Baseball was officially back at the beach after a seven-year absence following the 1992 departure of the Myrtle Beach Hurricanes (Advanced-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays).

The Pelicans debuted in 1999 and made an immediate impact by storming through its inaugural season.

Fast-forward to 2015. Last year was the 17th season for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans franchise and first as the Class A-Advanced affiliate of the Chicago Cubs.

Thanks to entertaining promotions, such as Christmas Vacation in July and Old School Hip Hop Night, the Pelicans welcomed an average of 3,877 fans through the gates of TicketReturn.com Field in 2015, setting a franchise record for the second straight season. The Pelicans drew 15 sellout crowds, and on three occasions, the club welcomed a max-capacity, standing-room-only sellout crowd of 6,599 fans.

In addition to their focus on the local community, the club worked to draw vacationers, specifically Cubs fans, to Myrtle Beach through several social media campaigns. LeadingBusinessMonthWeb

The Pelicans first home game is April 7. Buy your tickets and check out the game schedule for promotions and giveaways. We’ll see you at the ballpark!
