  • No, I never have and I thank the Lord it has never happened because I have heard so many horror stories. My husband and I use LifeLock to protect our identities. Any one else use LifeLock?

  • Yes, my mother stole my identity and bought cell phones, ordered thing online; which I was reimbursed for. But finger hut wrote a letter saying I was still responsible even after giving them proof I didn't receive the item. I was told because the person because the person was related to me I will be held responsible.

  • I heard lifelock inst even that good as in what they actually do you can do yourself. All they do is put you on a no spam list every 3 months so you wont get thoese "you pre approved" letters, and get your annual credit report. Is that true?
