Through the partnership, MonitorMyScore customers have 24/7 access to fraud specialists to proactively prepare for and resolve various identity theft situations. Combined with credit monitoring through MonitorMyScore, customers will have comprehensive protection of their identity and notification of changes or misuse of personal, private information.

Identity theft can damage life goals.
The ever-increasing threat of identity theft means customers can be seriously impacted throughout all facets of life. Social engineering schemes like phishing could take down an individual’s computer, causing loss of precious pictures and sensitive documents. A fraudulently filed tax return by a thief means the taxpayer may not receive the money rightfully owed to them for months. A young adult can be rejected to receive student aid or an apartment from years of fraudulent SSN misuse when they were a child. Or, a hopeful homeowner can be denied a mortgage because of poor credit caused by an identity thief.
“As identity theft continues to shift from financial gain to malicious abuse like employment ID theft or medical ID theft for patient services, so must the ways we monitor a customer’s identity health and well-being,” said George Vuckovich, CEO, MonitorMyScore. “Traditional credit monitoring is not enough. I’m excited to partner with CyberScout to provide their identity monitoring and resolution services to complement our robust credit monitoring platform for a comprehensive solution. Together, customers can rest assured in knowing their reputation and personal and credit information is always our top priority.”
