Identity theft protection snakeoil

If by 'identity theft' they mean someone using your personal information to execute financial transaction on the Internet, how exactly does is LifeLock supposed to work.

"Most famously, LifeLock ran a publicity stunt in which its CEO drove a truck painted with his own social security number around New York City, touting the effectiveness of the LifeLock service. It was later revealed that the executive's identity had in fact been stolen several times".
