SANTA BARBARA, Calif. and BETHESDA, Md., Feb. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Worldwide Rescue & Security, Inc. and Generali Global Assistance today announced a strategic partnership to provide Identity Resolution services to members of affinity organizations and loyalty clubs. The companies will collaborate to deliver a best-in-class product and service that will provide victims of identity theft and fraud the necessary tools and assistance needed to reestablish their good standing with financial institutions, lenders, government institutions, and credit bureaus. This service will finally answer the question many Americans ask after discovering their identity has been compromised: "Now what?"
Last year, approximately 16.7 million Americans were the victims of identity theft and that number is expected to grow. Seniors tend to be a vulnerable target for thieves, often compromising their Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, bank information, and medical records. This information can be purchased for up to hundreds of dollars on the black market, and the aftermath can impact the victim for years if it's not resolved quickly and correctly.
"We are extremely excited to announce this partnership with Generali Global Assistance," said Amy Watts, Vice President of Worldwide Rescue & Security, Inc. "Worldwide Rescue & Security, Inc. specializes in offering services and products that protect our members from the unexpected, so partnering with Generali Global Assistance to offer Identity Theft Resolution services was a natural fit for us."
