Protecting Your Identity During Holiday Shopping

As you finish up your holiday shopping, make sure that your identity isn't at risk.

Did you know that 1 in 10 U.S. consumers have been the victim of an identity theft? Even worse – many were not aware of it right away. Unfortunately, the aftermath of ID theft comes with poor credit score baggage, making it difficult for victims to secure loans in the future. Now that we’re all trying to cram our last minute holiday shopping into our busy schedules, we have to be careful of where our personal information is going, and protect ourselves from the possibility of our information getting hacked.

Although we do not have stand-alone identity theft policies here at Encharter Insurance, we can add Identity Theft Recovery to your existing homeowner’s insurance policy. This program assists in resolving identity fraud and features services including a personal advocate, credit monitoring, and fraud monitoring. For more information about an Identity Theft policy or about your other insurance policies, speak with an agent at Encharter Insurance.
