the marketing strategy for these protect your identity companies is to create a perception that your identity is vulnerable at every twist and turn you take where ever you might be. without that perception, no one pays the $99 a year for their protection.
and there probably is some possibility that your identity could be stolen. just as there is some possibility that you might be struck by lightning. but we don't don aluminium foil hats to protect ourselves from the possibility, because the possibility is so remote.
i've seen no persuasive data that identity data is being stolen at a rate greater than a lightning strike probability.
an internet article from USNEWS suggest the following:
"...Last week, the Federal Trade Commission came out with its annual report on consumer fraud, and for the 11th year in a row, identity theft has topped the list of complaints, with 250,854 Americans checking in on the matter."
or about a 0.0011 % rate of identity theft in the US based on adult population over 18.
and rooting for failure republicans can't attack the web site because it's not working, they will tack over to it's not secure. and the evidence offered to support the attack?
rooting for failure republicans don't need NO stinkin' evidence. evidence just gets in the way of the perception they want to create.
