Re: Identity theft protection snakeoil

Thank you for posting that. I was just about to do it myself but you beat me to it. LL is a complete waste of money, time, & effort; if it can't even protect its own CEO then there's no hope in HELL it can protect anyone else.

Like you said earlier just write to the three reporting firms & have a hold placed on your account. They will notify you if anything happens & thus allow you to stop fraud before it hurts. No need for the LL middleman, especially when all it's doing is notifying you that somebody has tried to use your identity... you know, the job the reporting companies ALREADY do if you ask.

*Sends a tall frosty pint down the bar to you*

Drink up & have a good one. Just don't use LL if you want to not waste your money on worthless bunk...
