What is an Identity Theft Alert and why would I need one?

If someone takes out a loan or opens a credit card account in your name, it's vital that you find out quickly to prevent fraud. Essential members will be instantly alerted to potential threats via their choice of phone and/or email. Premium members will also get notified if someone uses their Social Security number or asks the Postal Service to send their mail elsewhere.
