Abine offers free month of DeleteMe for Equifax data breach victims
Monday, September 11, 2017

BOSTON, Sept. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Abine Inc., The Online Privacy Company, announced today that anyone who had their personal information hacked in the Equifax data breach is eligible for a free month of DeleteMe - the #1 privacy protection service in the world - when subscribing to DeleteMe.

DeleteMe is more effective than credit freezes and monitoring

Abine's DeleteMe finds and removes personal information from dozens of data brokers. Data broker websites publicize personal information, and sell detailed profiles of you and your family. By removing this information, DeleteMe stops hackers from finding additional personal information, including:

    --  Home address /home value
    --  Age
    --  Email addresses
    --  Phone numbers
    --  Family members, ages, addresses, phone numbers, email address

Credit freezes and monitoring do not stop cases of identity theft where hackers use personally identifiable information (information that can be purchased from data brokers) to prove they are you.

How identity thieves use your detailed personal information as "proof"

Today's identity thieves use a technique called "pretexting" to bait victims into providing additional sensitive details using information readily available on the internet. With this technique scammers convince victims to release sensitive data that gives thieves full access to healthcare providers, financial institutions or government agencies. DeleteMe helps protect against pretexting and a variety of other forms of Identity theft including:

    --  Healthcare Fraud - With increasing healthcare costs, medical identity
        theft is on the rise
    --  Committing Crimes in your Name - When in contact with law enforcement,
        victims of identity theft can be arrested for crimes they didn't commit
    --  Social Engineering - Hackers take over social media accounts of friends
        and family, targeting other individuals to get them to send money or
        other personal information.
    --  Tax Return Fraud - Scammers can file for a fake tax return using a name
        and stolen Social Security Number
    --  Credit Line Fraud - Scammers open new credit cards in a victim's name,
        ruining chances of receiving future credit
