Clarity for Consumers, Inc. and the ITRC Unite to Help Consumers Fight ID Theft
CLEARWATER, Fla., March 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — To further educate and offer affordable and helpful resources for non-prime consumers, the Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC) and Clarity for Consumers have positioned their efforts to provide free identity theft mitigation and credit report services for free or for minimal costs.
The Identity Theft Resource Center is a nationally recognized non-profit organization which provides toll-free no-cost services to consumers and identity theft victims. Almost 40,000 individuals have availed themselves of no-charge ITRC services in the past five years, while millions have used the ITRC website and social networking services to educate themselves on identity theft, fraud, and scams.
“As a service agency that provides free assistance to thousands of victims each year, many of modest means, we are thrilled to partner with Clarity for Consumers in helping provide assistance to consumers nationwide,” said Rex Davis, Director of Operations at the ITRC. “We share a common interest in providing awareness, education, and support to the underserved.”
Consumers who are unable to afford fraud resolution services are able to contact the ITRC and find assistance for issues such as: identity theft, financial fraud, scams, and privacy. ITRC provides free assistance in mitigating their financial fraud case, governmental identity theft, criminal identity theft, child identity theft, and more.
“In light of the recent business transactions, like the purchase of ID Analytics, Inc. by LifeLock, Inc., it is evident that there is a need for a resource available to them to address the issues of identity theft and protection services,” said Tim Ranney, president and founder of Clarity Services, Inc. “There is a segment of the population that needs these services, but simply cannot afford them,” said Ranney.
The Clarity Credit Report, provided by Clarity Services, Inc., is available exclusively from the Clarity for Consumers website for less than a dollar. The site also provides visitors with educational materials that guide them through their report, articles on improving credit standing, and more. Non-prime consumers can learn about this credit report which is widely used in the alternative financial services market and which they need to understand the value of its contents and their credit standing.
“Our partnership with the ITRC is one more step in the right direction to providing consumers with all the tools and resources needed to understand their credit, and how the value and benefits of Clarity for Consumers and the ITRC will place them at an advantage in understanding their available credit options, and resources to assist them,” stated Alice Vassel, Executive Director for Clarity for Consumers.
Both the ITRC and Clarity for Consumers strive to help non-prime individuals who may not be able to afford the valuable services necessary or control access over their personal information and credit status. Educational and resource services include fraud resolution, credit education, and access to their Clarity Credit Report.
