Worried about identity theft? Our partners at Savvy Sugar offer an interesting look at a proactive move to thwart the bad guys.
Freezing your credit report is an option for you if you want to play offense with identity thieves, and won’t be in the market for any new credit in the near future (including shopping for a new cell phone or utility service). If you’ve been a victim of identity theft freezing your credit report won’t cost you any money, but if you’ve come this far without having your identity stolen than freezing your credit report comes with a fee.
For more on this approach to identity protection, read How to Freeze Your Credit Report on Savvy Sugar.
