Our Mission is Simple: Protect you from Identity Theft
As a former chief prosecutor, not a day went by that I did not get yet another identify theft case on my desk. The stories were awful. Wrongful arrests and incarcerations, ruined credit, bankruptcy, angry collection calls, lawsuits, repo men at their homes, lost business deals, denials of loans and insurance, lost job opportunities, and on and on. One lady was even wrongly arrested with her three children in the car and taken to jail. It took almost a week to sort out that someone had used her identity when they got arrested for another charge. Guess where she spent that time?
Rick Jackson, Co-Founder and Chief Prosecutor It happens all the time. Criminals use your name and write fraudulent checks. They run up tens of thousands of dollars on credit cards. They steal your information, have a drivers license made and use it when they get arrested. One of my victims lost his loan on a new home. Another lady was forced into initial bankruptcy proceedings. And yet another woman did not get a job after they ran her credit. They gave it to someone else before it could get resolved. These criminals even target children and the elderly – as they are commonly unaware of what is on their credit. This does not even mention the aggravation and time it takes to deal with it – dozens of hours on the phone, on hold, people accusing you of lying, hiring a lawyer, affidavits you need to submit and the like. Most victims of identity theft just give up, understandably.
I do not write this to scare you. It is simply reality and it is scary. These are all real victims and real people just like you or me. People do not think about it until it happens to them. And then you wish you did.
So what can you do about it?
That was one of the most aggravating parts. I could not tell any of my victims how to prevent it in the future. There really was no good protection out there against it…until now.
Joining Together to Fight Identity Theft
We decided to change that. And we did. I have pulled together a variety of experts in the field of law enforcement (all of whom had retired and moved into the private arena). And since doing so, I have found one thing in common…all of these people may have left their government jobs, but they have not lost their passion for protecting the public. So we have joined forces: the former Head of the Organized Crime Section, an FBI agent, Secret Service agents, a U.S. Marshal, three highly seasoned detectives from the Texas Rangers and the Police Department, myself – a former Chief State Prosecutor, and even the former United States Attorney. We all have something different to offer. And more importantly, everyone wants to do something about it. And who better to do it than us? After all, no one knows more about this area than we do. That is what this site and this service is all about. While no one can (truthfully) “guarantee” you will never be a victim, we can confidently say that we are your best shot at preventing identity theft.
The Truth About Identity Theft
Anyone who tells you they can protect you from Identity Theft completely is simply lying to you. Look no further than the recent national news. The Federal Trade Commission and former customers are suing their identity theft services for providing them with “million dollar guarantees.” These other services have little to no understanding of how this crime works but they are quick to offer you guarantees once you pay them. That is not our mission. We want you to know the truth about this crime.
The truth is that you cannot stop identity theft entirely. Period. It is impossible. But…you can dramatically reduce your chances of being a victim. And that is why we created this program. And who better to do that than us? We know it. We lived it. We dedicated our lives to it. And we have captured and beat the criminals at their own game time and time again. Now we are using our experience to provide you with a better service.
Ten percent of all profits will automatically be donated to charitable organizations – with a focus on foundations that help financially destitute families who have been affected by identity theft. After all, we should be supporting our communities and the organizations that are trying to root out this devastating crime.
