The trauma is astounding. If you’ve been the victim of identity theft, you know how violating it feels. Your credit cards are frozen and your credit bureau is red-flagged. It can permeate deep into your life, affecting your social security number, your mailing address, email account, future tax returns, and beyond. It’s a crime that might not seem like a huge problem…until you’ve experienced it.
The fact is, most people don’t think it will affect them. Ironically, an Experian survey on identity theft reveals that 61 percent of those surveyed are only mildly concerned about the security of their personal information online; another 17 percent aren’t concerned about it at all.
The same survey finds that only 18 percent of respondents are enrolled in any sort of paid credit monitoring product. Yet, despite the lack of concern for security, over half had either experienced identity theft or knew someone who had.
There has perhaps never been a greater opportunity to offer customers what they want: A proactive identity protection plan that not only prevents identity theft to begin with, but offers a 100% success rate in full-recovery!
Your offering is made stronger with this bullet-proof plan that protects the customer with valuable benefits. It makes your F&I office a harbor where true customer care is shown. Identity Theft Protection provides coverage into every aspect of a customer’s credit life, not just their car loan.
There are three components to Identitheft coverage: credit monitoring for new loan and credit applications and more, cyber monitoring for personal information listed online, and internet security through an antivirus program.
In the digital age, it’s impossible for an individual to protect themselves. You can offer a solution that ensures peace of mind should identity theft occur.
Identity theft should be a real concern. With less than 20 percent of the population using paid credit monitoring products, you can be the first to the table to present affordable protection.
With more than half of the population knowing someone who has experienced identity theft – or previously experiencing it themselves – a brief presentation turns Identitheft into an easy sale.
