and taking over, and i was scared. she had my home address, she had my telephone number, she had my social security number, and she was able to make a purchase for $8,000. >> someone got ahold of my driver's license number and obtained tickets pretending to be me, giving my information to the police officer. my employer told me that i had seven days to clear it up or i would be unemployed. i had to prove that i was innocent because, to them, i'm looking guilty as if i have something to hide. >> in my early days with the fbi, the crooks would go into a bank with sunglasses and a hat, rob the bank, they'd probably get caught, face 10 years in prison. now they steal our identities. >> announcer: 1 in 4 people have experienced identity theft.
6:01 am
matter to identity thieves. just having a cial security number makes you a target. >> crime is changing. criminals have moved into cyber crime because they know the risk's low to them and the payoff is much higher. >> announcer: over 100 million americans have had their personal data exposed, and there's a new victim of identity fraud every 2 seconds. >> we're all vulnerable to identity theft, unfortunately. for savvy consumers who really want to safeguard their overall financial wellbeing,ou have to be proactive and take steps to guard against this problem. >> announcer: in the digital age, our information is everywhere, making us all more vulnerable to identity theft. that's why millions of people have become members of lifelock. it's the best identity-theft protection available. >> it was a very empowering experience for me to have lifelock on my side. >> they're helping protect my accounts and my social security number. >> lifelock made it so i can g back to my life. >> i feel safe. lifelock's there.
6:02 am
i can't tell you how happy that made me. >> aouncer: stay tuned and meet top experts in the field of identity theft. learn some of the tricks identity thieves do to steal your personal information. >> so this is how easy it is to skim this card. >> announcer: and learn more about how lifelock detects fraud and helps protect you from identity theft. >> detecting fraud is a lot like squeezing jell-o. as soon as you stop it at one place, it squirts out somewhere else. and we've really devoted the last decade of our research specifically to identity fraud protection. >> announcer: find out more about what a lifelock membership means to you and meet some of the lifelock identity protection agents ready to answer your questions, to help resolve identity-theft problems, and to keep watch over your private information. >> you have this whole team of people on your side, and you know that you don't have to go it alone. i don't know what i would have done without lifelock. >> when i first got the alert from lifelock, my reaction was actually, "ha ha, i got you." since i'd been alerted and
6:03 am
the issue, whoever was doing that wasn't going to be able to benefit. >> i was a victim of identity theft, and it wasn't fun. i was on my own. i had no idea what to do. and it was a terrible feeling. but it wasn't as bad as when it happened to my daughter, who was 7 at the time. somebody had stole h social security number. i was furious. i was concerned about her future. and so i contacted lifelock because i had heard about them. i looked into what they offer, and it was the best thing i ever did. >> announcer: now let's join lifelock member tom jourden to learn more about identity theft, the fastest growing crime in america. with tom is former fbi agent and renowned speaker jeff lanza, an expert in fraud, cyber crime, and identity theft. >> jeff, thanks for being here. >> you're welcome. >> you know, 10 years ago, i didn't even think about identity theft, but then, unfortunately,
6:04 am
and now we hear that it's the fastest growing crime in america. why is that? >> a couple of reasons why it's the fastest growing cre in america -- number one, it's easy to commit, and the bad guys know at. the second reason is, it's very lucrative. so once they get your information, especially your social security number, then it's easy to convert that into cash, to monetize that information. and once that happens, the victim is left with a lot of problems. >> i think most people think if they have a problem, their bank or credit card company will just take care of it for them, right? >> well, it depends on what the problem is. if the problem is credit card fraud, someone used your existing credit card number or cloned your card, yeah, the bank will take care of that. but that's just one part of the problem of identity theft. there's a much broader problem, and that is when someone steals your identity enrely. they've got your i.d., they've got your social security number, they apply for these accounts in your name. you don't even know it's happening. you may not figure it out until you get a call from a bill collector, a credit card company that says you're past due on a credit card that you don't even know you had.
6:05 am
you're kind of just blind that this is happening 'cause there's you. >> that's exactly right. you know, we have our jobs, we have our family, we have our life. do you want to take hours out of your day, maybe for days and weeks at a time, to try to figure out how to correct the problems that the identity thief caused? if you were gonna do all that, i don't know how much time it would take or even where you would begin to do that. do that. >> so, in general, the advice you would give -- what can we do to protect ourselves? >> the elier identity theft gets detected, the sooner you can address the issues and stop it from getting worse, and that's where lifelock comes in. they deal with this every day. >> when jennifer learned a fraudulent account was opened in her name, she thought she could easily deal with it on her own. >> so here i am trying to call and prove that i'm the real jennifer, and they just don't believe me. i probably talked to six or seven people. each time i'd have to repeat my story. "i did not sign up for this credit card. i don't owe you any money." that person says, "well, i can't help you, but let me transfer you to this person," and it's
6:06 am
it's like, "just send me to the right person." i almost got to the point where i was like, "let me pay for this $400 and just close the account and let's be done," but the thing is, there were other credit cards out there. you just don't know how deep it goes. when my lifelock agent got involved, somehow she knew exactly who to talk to. i never figured out that, but she knew exactly who to talk to. and she helped me take care of it. >> we work, shop, even pay bills almost anywhere. it's great, but it can also make us more vulnerable to identity theft. jim stickley is paid to think like a hacker. he's been featured on investigative reports revealing where we're the most vulnerable to cyber crime. >> no one thinks they're gonna fall victim to identity theft, but check this out. in a caf\ like this, you know, people have this idea that they're safe when they're online. they feel it's being provided by the local caf\ here, so it should be safe. the reality is, though, that something like this -- this is a wi-fi device -- can be brought
6:07 am
here in front of people without them even knowing it, and instead of them connecting to the wi-fi in the organization, they'll be connecting to this wi-fi device instead. what if they type in login credentials? i've got them. if they type in a password, i've got it. if they type in credit card information, i'll get that, as well. all of this information can be captured by the criminal, and then they can use at information to commit identity theft. i do these scams to show people what's going on out there. criminals are continually finding new ways to rip people off. and the bottom line is, you need somebody in your court. that's why lifelock makeso much sense. >> these real lifelock members all volunteered to share their experience in this show. stay tuned to hear more true stories, learn more about how identity thieves work, and find out how lifelock can help protect your identity. >> announcer: identity theft is the fastest growing crime in america. are you at risk? you could be if you bank or shop online, have health insurance or
6:08 am
have a smartphone or use public wi-fi, even if you file your taxes online. no matter how careful you are, your social security number and your other personal information is out there out of your control. just detecting the problem is not enough. how do you resolve an issue if you have one? >> i signed up for lifelock. we have someone in our corner to help fight that fight. >> announcer: a lifelock membership means you have a whole team of lifelock identity-protection agents ready to answer your questions, resolve identity-tft problems, and to keep watch for threats to your identity by monitoring more than a trillion data points a day. that's why millions of people have become members of lifelock. it's the best identity-theft protection ailable. the minute you become a lifelock member, you have exclusive members-only protection services, including 24/7 access to u.s.-based identity-protection agents, real people with experience and identity-protection knowledge to

6:11 am
all it takes is a second for it to be stolen. that'll be $7.49. >> great. >> skimming is when a criminal will take your credit card and they'll run it through a device... so, this is how easy it is to skim this card. sorry about that. ...and then that device is gonna record everything that was on your card. they can then use that information to go out and shop online or even make their own credit cards to make purchases in the next store they go to. i do these scams to show people what's going on out there. criminals are continually finding new ways to rip people off. >> it's something that's out of control. i can't protect my identity all the time with everything that i do. bad people are gonna get your information whether you want them to or not. i have really a teammate in lifelock knowing that they're keeping an eye out for things, things that i couldn't do myself, and having them on my side, and it really is that [sighs] i can just relax and take one worry off my plate. >> the technology behind cyber
6:12 am
about lifelock's technology to protect you? well, dr. stephen coggeshall, lifelock's chief analytics and science officer, is here to explain how lifelock's proprietary technology is helping fight identity fraud. dr. coggeshall, thanks for being here. >> my pleasure. >> tell me about lifelock's proprietary technology. >> well, we do a variety of things. and what we do is really cool. we go to our more than a trillionata elements in our data bank. we'll look at all the other things it's connected to in the world, all the other applications we see, we look at what's going on at the address, has anybody else used that social security number, is there something strange about that e-mail? and we gather all that information together and put it through some pretty complicated mathematical formulas, and we come up with a probability score, the likelihood that that's a fraud attempt. >> and then you alert me as a lifelock customer if you see something out of the ordinary? >> that's correct. if a member gets an alert, they have the opportunity to say, "oh, yeah, that's me." but if it's not them, if they're sitting home watching tv and they get one of these alerts, they can press a button and contact lifelock, and we start the process of shutting that
6:13 am
lifelock started from the very beginning specifically to protect our members from identity fraud. that's our reason for existence. >> mcellphone goes off at just past 6:00 a.m. and it's a text alert from lifelock. someone attempted to use my name and social security number to open a credit card. they filled out an application online with a $10,000 limit. lifelock caught it, notified me, and we were able to stop that credit card from ever being issued because we caught it early enough in the processing phase. >> when your identity's been stolen, you want a knowledgeable, trusted friend on your side to get you out of the mess, and this is the big difference between monitoring your own credit and lifelock. a lifelock membership means you have a whole team of identity-protection agents ready to watch for threats to your identity, to answer your questions, and to help resolve identity-theft problems. lifelock members like me get a decated agent based right here in the u.s. to help resolve any
6:14 am
meet identity-protection agents daniel, pua, and sarah. they're part of a team of agents who address identity threats and help lifelock members if an identity theft occurs. what happens when a member gets an alert? i mean, when do you get involved, and how does that work? >> once our members notify us that it was not them, that they believe it's identity theft, is when we get started. then you'll speak to somebody like me, and i'll call you and i'll assist you through the whole process. >> we know who to call, what documents are needed, and we get it done much quicker than a member ever could on their own. >> i know the questions to ask, i know the people to talk to, i know the numbers to call, and i can make it just so much easier for you. and i'm also willing to stayn hold for you if you need. >> wait a minute. say that again? >> yeah, i'm willing to stay on hold as long as it takes on your behalf if necessary. >> 'cause that is the worst part -- staying on hold. >> it is. [ chuckles ] but i'm happy to do it. >> you're happy to do it? >> yes. i am. >> now, sarah, i know that you are a veteran. you, i assume, work with a lot of veterans and people in the armed services.
6:15 am
up until a couple years ago, social security number was on identification cards. it's sad that people fighting for our country have to worry about that, but we are more than happy to help and see them through it, to carry the burden, and that way they can focus on the mission, and that's why i love what we do. >> and when you go home, sarah, at the end of the day, what makes you say, "that was a good day"? >> i love when i close a case. i love it. and every time i close one and i can't wait to call my member, it really is just gratifying knowing that taking the burden and helping them through the process and being able to make that phone call, "hey, your case is closed" is priceless. i love it. >> what's impressed me most about lifelock is they're also gonna be there to help you afterwards if something happens. the credit monitoring agencies, they're just gonna go, "no, you had an issue. it's on you."
6:16 am
>> every single time the lifelock agent, if we've had to stay on the phone too long with the other company, the agent will always say, "let me take this, angela. i'll call you back when i ge them back." and i just feel like they respected my time and me. >> they know everything that there's no way i could know. i don't have to think about, "how do i fix this?" i turn it over to lifelock, and they'll help me. >> announcer: identity theft is the fastest growing crime in amera. are you at risk? you could be if you bank or shop online, have health insurance or fill out medical forms, if you have a smartphone or use public wi-fi, even if you file your taxes online. no matter how careful you are, your social security number and your other personal information is out there out of your control. just detecting the problem is not enough. how do you resolve an issue if you have one? >> i signed up for lifelock. we have someone in our corner to help fight that fight. >> announcer: lifelock membership means you have a whole team of lifelock

6:20 am
it was so simple, and i actually was kicking myself that i didn't do it earlier. sometimes i even like hearing the ding, knowing there's an alert. lifelock mes me feel safe knowing someone is concerned about my future and that of my children. >> you know, jeff, last time i was part of a data breach, i got this letter, and they offered me identity-theft protection. i mean, what do you think about that from the company that just got breached? >> well, by the time you got the letter, it's already days or weeks have gone by since the company even realized it happened, and they don't usually realize it's happened until well after the breach has occurred. so the point is, it's too late. i mean, you've already had your information out there. it could already be a big problem. the point of identity-theft protection is being proactive. that's what lifelock does. it helps you figure out if someone's trying to steal your identity, and then if it does happen, they help to resolve it. >> i went to the doctor, and they told me -- i got a letter that there was a breach and that
6:21 am
i was very relieved that i had already signed up for lifelock. >> so, here's one scam that criminals will do. they'll buy an 800 phone number, which will actually forward to their cellphone, and then they'll call up and leave a voicemail to you telling you there's a problem with your banking account. they'll leave that 800 number in hopes that you'll call them back. so you should have received a security i.d. when you got your voicemail. so, once they answer the phone, the first thing they're gonna want to do is they're gonna want to verify that you are who you say you are. for security purposes, i just need to verify your social security number. people are very used to that, so they'll say, "sure, my social security number is" whatever it is, and just like that, they have that before people even have a chance to think, "maybe i shouldn't have given that out." yeah, no problem at all. you have a great day. thank you. bye-bye. and just like that, we have her social security number. >> protecting your identity is a smart financial move. personal finance expert, best-selling author, and journalist lynnette khalfani-cox helps her clients with their financial portfolios. here's what she had to say about identity-theft protection.
6:22 am
things right. you might be saving, planning for the future, investing. all of those things are great. but if you haven't taken time to protect yourself against the risks that are out there, the very real risk of identity theft, then you haven't really secured your family's finances in a way that's smart. identity theft is a threat to your financial wellbeing because it not only affects your credit rating and impacts your ability to get lns, it could also hamper you in everyday life, and doing things like renting an apartment, getting a mortgage, or even getting a job that you might need. the people who get financial help for any aspect of their live whether it's taxes, whether it's managing credit card debt, whether it's planning for retirement, they actually tend to do a lot better in reaching their goa, and likewise, the people who have expert help to deal with the problem of identity theft, those folks also fare so much better because they have a team of experts who know the groundwork,
6:23 am
that the typical person just doesn't know. lifelock helps alert you about potential identity-theft problems, and that early alert is crucial because you can take action and do something immediately to prevent the problem from getting worse. >> i've been a lifelock member now since 2008, and i can't imagine being without lifelock any more than i can imagine racing down a highway without a seatbelt. i mean, if somebody breaks into your house, you can get a new lock. if your car is stolen, you can get a new car. but you only have one identity. you're not gonna be able to replace it. so protect it with the best. >> when your identity is stolen, you just feel so violated and just so helpless. but knowing that you have lifelock, it just -- you have this whole team of people on your side, and you know that you don't have to go it alone. >> we feel protected, and we feel like there's almost like a blanket of security around us. >> it's just really great to know that they are there and we
6:24 am
>> i would compare lifelock to having that big older brother walking side by side with you on the first day of school so that everyone knows "don't mess with him." >> choosing lifelock to protect our identity was one of the best decisions we've ever made. >> this is financial protection that you can't afford not to have. it's kind of like the people who say to me, "uh, i'm too cash-strapped and i can't afford to save." i say, "you can't afford not to save." likewise, you can't afford not torotect your credit health and your identity. >> the value of lifelock to me -- it's priceless. what's the value of your credit? what's the value of your family's credit? >> i've been attacked seven times since 2011. and each time, lifelock was there to help me. i'm gonna be a lifelock member for life. >> what is more important than making sure the only you out there is you? >>nnouncer: identity theft is

6:41 am
and it is a mortifying experience to walk on a plane and somebody look at you like, "oh, don't sit next to me. don't sit next to me." at my heaviest, i was this close to having to get a seat belt extender on the plane. and it's an uncomfortable feeling feeling like you got to suck it in just to put a seat belt on. so how do you feel now when you fly? [ sighs ] [ laughter ] iteels so good. i get on the plane, i sit down, and i put that seat belt on. and i stretch that suckeras far as it will go... [ laughter, applause ] so, i'm just like, "yeah!" how about beautiful kelly? when i look at those pictures, i see a sad person. i see a person who was hiding. i see a person who was comforting myself. my husband and i lost a child in my late 20s. and i was always a thin person before. so, i turned to comfort food. and we had two more beautiful children, but i was never able to get that weight off.
6:42 am

6:48 am
the hardest thing for me about my weight loss was, at 14 years old, going to work at "general hospital," and they decided to put laura "on a diet". it was very hard for me as a very young girl to be put on a diet on tv, and that made me very insecure. that's how, you know, my body image, uh... how it began. i have been on every diet there is, every fad crazy diet. i've been in pain about my body and my weight all my life. i tried nutrisystem, telling myself, when i saw the food and all the things that i could eat, "this isn't gonna work." there is no way that i can eat all that food and have a dessert and lose weight. i'll do it. i'll do it just to prove you wrong, but, you know, it's not gonna work. i lost 40 pounds on nutrisystem. it's crazy. i have never been that nice to myself with my food. i have always restricted food
6:49 am

6:50 am
-oh, my. -oh, yeah. [ laughs ] -so how old are you? -30. so, you're 30. so how long were you struggling with your weight? mostly when i got to college. you know, you start eating at 3:00 a.m. and studying in the middle of the night... oh, boy. ...and so, you know, you just don't care about those things. why did you decide to lose it? well, you know, my doctor said "you have high blood pressure." you know... -at 30. i was on high-blood- pressure medicine in my 20s, you know, so i was like, "something has to change." yeah. so, what was it that caused you to make that decision? my sister was getting married, and my mom was like, "let's just do this. we can drop a few before the wedding, before you have to walk down the aisle." and i was like, "okay." i lost 60 by the wedding, and i just kept going. i had to, you know? -whoo! and look at this -- before and after. isn't that incredible?

6:53 am
is that, you know, you just pick what you want. i mean, you guys, i ate pizza. i ate pasta. i mean give me one of those ice-cream sandwiches at the end of my day... -love the ice-cream sandwiches. ...because even though they're versions of the real ones, you don't feel like you're on a diet. -mnh-mnh. -and that's why nutrisystem works. you know, you're not obsessed with weighing foods and doing all that other stuff. shopping it and counting it, like you said -- that's the perfect word. you get obsessed with food, and you're gonna cheat. you're gonna go off your diet. all you have to do in the morning is say, "this is what i want. i want this," and then you're done. and they do all the work. it's fantastic. -it sure is. -yeah. -thank you. -all right, who else has a question for marie? yes, you in the purple. -hi, marie. -hi. my name's renee. my question is, is i'm 54 years old, and i've already been through the change. all my life i've never had to deal with weight gain. and then, all of a sudden, boom, it hits.
