I have written before about insurance companies offering identity theft protection with your insurance policy. However, the programs cost money. Well, I came across a free identity theft program.
Jenifer Miller of Green Valley Mortgage, in cooperation with the Solano County DA's office, is offering Credit Watch. You can get more information at her website. The program allows you to check your credit reoprt up to 3 times per year at no cost. Checking your credit is the best way to monitor identity theft according to the FTC.
I think you owe it to yourself to check out this program.
