TV commercial backfires

You remember those TV commercials for lifelock the theft identity service? They had a big truck driving all over a big city with the owner of Lifelock having his social security number on the side of it. He was that confident of his company. Well I found out his social security number was stolen the same day the commercial aired. The thief got away with around $500 before he was stopped. It seems the system does work to some extent. People that have had that kind of thing happen to them know the feeling of being violated in the pocketbook. Did you know that you could be denied employment because of a bad credit score? That I feel is an outrage. You have a bad credit score because you don't have a job to pay your bills and you can't get a job because you have a bad credit score. It gets even worse when your identity is stolen.
