Isn't it scary that everything in today's world revolves mostly online? Online is the new way to shop, bank and do other things. This means your identity is also prone of being so exposed and distributed over the net. Don't be surprised if you'll receive offers from this company, bank and stores.
There was one time when I was offered to open a membership for one of the hardware chains, surprisingly all they asked from me was my home phone. I was quite puzzled at first but upon typing in my home phone number, VOILA! All my information appeared such as name, address, etc. So that made me think, for somebody who wants to steal your identity it's so easy to access it just by choosing random phone number?
It's hard to say if having to purchase an identity theft protection services can be beneficial to protect your precious information. Upon checking Lifelock reviews it seems like a good idea to be protected this way. Having Lifelock might seem like a waste of money for some people but considering the offers included in their package, it's just like paying for your peace of mind. They will constantly monitor the net for your information whether it's being exposed most especially in those ile sharing sites. Public and court records monitoring will also be provided, credit bureau reports, bank account protection are just among their major concerns t make sure you are kept under wraps.
It's advisable to read through reviews to better guide you whether you'll need to try their services or not at all.

Thanks for the guest post by Jo Levy
Here are 3 important steps and guidelines to follow in your quest.
First, when browsing for these sites, observe the web page. Does it look like a professionally designed website? Does it look new? Or does it look like crap. It will be obvious when you look and navigate through the web pages available. This may sound vain, but I must stress that this is the type of first impression that will tell you a lot about the company and how they treat thier business. It is not always accurate, but it does help filter out the scam sites.
Second, look for existing discussions or testimonials as part of your investigation. Look for reviews and opinions on the company you are eyeing on. Chances are, there are folks all around the world talking about it, reviewing it, criticizing it. This is usually the best way to find real paying online survey sites. If you find that most of the comments, reviews, testimonials and discussions are fairly positive, then it is worth giving them a try.
And third, check to see if the company has dealings with Fortune 500 companies. Fortune 500 companies? These are companies like Nike, Dell, Wallmart, Panasonic and Ebay... you know, the big shots! Sites that are affiliated with these big shots often pay well and are considered reputable.
Some sites to consider checking out can be found on this list of survey sites I joined a while back!
