Debix has added an incredibly valuable offer to the identity protection market. Previously Debix concentrated on selling to corporate clients and consumers could sign up with LoudSiren, their partner in the identity protection network. In an exchange of roles, LoudSiren will now market only to businesses. Consumers can now sign up direct at Debix.com. To kick off the change in roles Debix announced, in a surprising if not shocking move, that they were lowering their price to only $24 per year. Though their is no guarantee that the large discount will always remain, there are no signs that this is a limited time Debix promotion. Family plans are also available at a discounted rate.
For those still unfamiliar with Debix, they are the company that signed residents of the States of Ohio and Connecticut, as well as the City of Nashville, after they experienced large data breaches. Currently, Debix protects government agencies in 35 states.
Debix is also known for their unique fraud alert system that protects your phone number and provides an audit trail. Instead of placing your phone number in your credit file, Debix places their phone number. When a potential creditor calls, Debix routes the call to any three phone numbers of your choice. You can then either approve the transaction or connect to a Debix Identity Response Specialist, a licensed investigator, who will contact and involve the appropriate authorities. In one case reported on their website, Debix protected one of their customers from an illegal $30,000 equity loan. Nothing special there but there On Call Investigator was able to learn how the customer breach occurred and realized this customers business associate could also be at risk. They notified the associate and sure enough he was about to get dinged for $30,000 as well. The appropriate bank was notified and the transaction stopped. This is a unique selling proposition for Debix as they are the only identity protection network offering this service.
The other claim to fame for Debix is that they are the only identity protection company that can prove they prevent identity fraud. Recently they stated they have stopped over 1400 cases of identity theft worth a total of $9,310,000 in the last 10 months. Their unique system allows them to track how many identity fraud attempts they have stopped.
Like their competitors Debix places and renews your fraud alerts every 90 days, stops pre-approved credit offers, significantly reduces junk mail, and provides you with a 3 bureau credit report. They also provide $25,000 worth of identity theft insurance.
In our opinion, this is a very strong company and offer. In fact, we find the price unbelievably low. Debix can make this offer due to the economies of scale brought forth by their innovative fraud alert technology.
