Yesterday, I posted a link to a blog article about the CEO of Lifelock (if you live in the U.S., you've heard the ads) who had his identity stolen after posting his Social Security Number on his website. He is so confident in Lifelock's identity theft insurance, that he is always telling people his Social Security Number in his advertisements. I saw him on television once and he came across to me like a huckster. I wouldn't trust him with my personal information for half a second. Allegedly, his co-founder stole his own father's identity to apply for credit - it just seems like a shady operation to me.
Well, the same blog wrote up an article on all the free things you can do for yourself, that Lifelock charges to do for you. Today, Ensign Terry Bryson of the Starship Enterprise has suggested that Toby do one of those things. "No, go ahead, Toby. Contact the credit bureaus before we do anything else. I'll wait here and play Backgammon. See you in a few hours. Do you have any snacks?"
If you'd like a preview of the next few weeks of Mary Worth read the article, and let's see how many of the things Terry covers.
