How do you get in on the action?
Members can enroll for LifeLock at www.lifelock.com or by calling (800) LIFELOCK and mentioning the promotion code USAIR1.
As the industry leader in identity theft protection, LifeLock requests on behalf of its clients that the national credit bureaus place fraud alerts on its members’ credit files, and requests that members’ names be removed from pre-approved credit card offer and junk mail lists. Members are also entitled to LifeLock’s WalletLock(TM), eRecon(TM) and TrueAddress(TM) services. WalletLock works to cancel and replace all documents and personal identifying information inside a wallet if it is lost or stolen. eRecon is a regular patrol of the Internet in search of social security numbers, credit card numbers, driver’s license numbers and email addresses of LifeLock members to protect against the information being illegally traded or sold online. LifeLock’s TrueAddress service searches to see if members have had a change of address form filed and alert them to ensure they are aware of the change. The company’s services are backed by a $1 million total service guarantee.
