As you may be aware, the problem of identity theft is growing rapidly
and like other personal risks - cannot be eliminated.  Furthermore, the current environment places you at great risk of having your identity stolen; and the recovery process, as dictated by government agencies, makes ID theft recovery time-intensive, at the least, and more than likely - frustrating, emotionally draining, and costly.

Chances are, you insure your home or car from theft or damage.  Wouldn't you agree that protecting your identity is just as important?
