More on LifeLock…or, are the executives in LifeLock morons?

Lifelock_upside_down
Holy cow, as I look deeper into the identity theft protection business it seems that LifeLock is pretty shady, both because the executives seem to be full of crap – if not outright criminals – and the service itself is wacky: pay us $10 a month for something that you could do for free in 12 minutes per year, and surrender your SSN and limited Power of Attorney to employees whose own backgrounds are not checked in the process.  What are you…on drugs or something??  LifeLock is a Life Crock.

    Remember when you originally posted about the other identity theft service… and I commented about Life Lock and the promotional methods on its web site.
    Yeah – all those “testimonials” nothing of real substance. While I’m all for anything that will truly be a protection – they raise every red flag I can think of when I hit their site. Therefore I am not at all surprised about this post. Figures they would be exactly as they look.

    Actually, Teresa, it was your original comment that inspired me to dig deeper. Thanks!
