SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- IDT911™ has been chosen by Civic, an identity protection and management solution, to power its official public beta of its app designed to help Americans manage their identity and stop identity fraud before it happens. Included with the membership, Civic gives users 24/7 access to fraud specialists for guidance through various identity theft situations, including, but not limited to: document replacement, email compromise, employment ID theft, financial ID theft and tax ID theft.
Identity theft is on the rise.
According to Javelin Report "2016 Identity Fraud: Fraud Hits an Inflection Point," there are 13.1 million fraud victims in the U.S. and there was a 113 percent increase in new account fraud in 2015 alone. Civic believes the rise in identity fraud has become such a public concern that the only solution is for consumers to become proactively involved the moment their personal information is used instead of fixing the problems after they have occurred. The company chose IDT911 for its unparalleled reputation and its comprehensive offering to assist members in protecting the various facets of their life.
"After reviewing countless identity theft resolution firms, it was a no-brainer to partner with IDT911," said Vinny Lingham, co-founder and CEO, Civic. "As a start-up, it was important to join forces with a partner similar to Civic – one that offers innovative products, around-the-clock access, and knowledgeable assistance to members. We found all of that and more with IDT911 and we couldn't be happier with bringing them on board."
