Identity Theft Protection

Columbia, SC (The Department Of Consumer Affairs)-The Department of Consumer Affairs wants to make sure consumers are aware of the options available as Protect My ID subscriptions begin to expire. Keep in mind, consumers can take advantage of any of these options, even if they did not sign up for Experian’s Protect My ID.Among the options available are: (1) another year of identity theft protection offered for FREE through the state; or (2) a tax deduction to offset the cost a consumer might incur when purchasing their own protection service, and (3) a fraud alert and/or security freeze.
