IDology, a leading provider of identity and age verification solutions, today announced that Identity Rehab Corporation has selected its solutions for use within the company’s identity theft detection and resolution services. This partnership gives Identity Rehab subscribers the first of its kind monitoring service designed to alert their customers of potential identity theft threats.
The Federal Trade Commission recently released a report showing that in 2006 it received over 670,000 consumer fraud and identity theft complaints with reported losses from consumers of more than $1.1 billion.
"Identity theft frequently is associated with credit-related fraud," said Justin Yurek, President and COO of Identity Rehab. "But credit reports only reveal a tiny fraction of the threat and potential damages to victims."
The life crippling dangers identity theft victims experience are often found in other ways a thief illegally uses personal data such as to obtain a job, driver's license or passport, seek medical care or as cover for committing other crimes. Identity Rehab’s services help provide peace of mind to consumers worried about the integrity of their personal information. Using IDology’s ExpectID solution, Identity Rehab is able to expand its monitoring services to over 10,000 different data sources as well as be able to identify potential irregularities in a consumer’s personal data. After identifying any data discrepancies, Identity Rehab then is able to develop a proactive road map for preventing losses and services necessary for victims of identity theft to restore their data integrity.
“It was important to us to find a partner that shared our vision for consumer protection,” said Yurek. “IDology’s solutions provide us with an effective verification service that supports consumer and information privacy and does not overexpose consumer data.”
“Identity Rehab is taking on the challenge to help consumers monitor their personal information and be alerted to inconsistencies,” said John Dancu, CEO of IDology. “This partnership extends our reach to directly benefit consumers and offers recourse for people with irregularities in their data records.”
