When someone breaks into your home or hits your car, the results are usually immediate and obvious. But when someone steals your identity or compromises your online accounts, disaster can strike right under your nose -- and come with disastrous consequences. Consider identity theft insurance from Knoxville Insurance Group, which is designed to protect you in the event of such situations.
Credit card fraud, loans taken out in your name, stolen bank accounts and bogus insurance policies filed in your name are all possible means to compromise your identity. As the world has grown increasingly digital, this problem has increased in scope. Identity theft can happen through physical circumstances (say, losing your wallet) as easily as it can through seemingly innocent Internet browsing (such shopping on a malicious site and giving key personal details to the wrong people). Major data breaches of businesses and digital databases are also sources of concern.
Identity theft crimes can have long-term ramifications, scarring your credit rating and creating years of financial headaches. Such scenarios are exactly what we strive to prevent. Knoxville Insurance Group offers comprehensive identity theft protection to keep you empowered in an uncertain world. Forms of protection include reimbursing you for your fraudulent charges, credit alerts and credit monitoring.
Identity theft insurance is often tied to home insurance or renters insurance as an "endorsement" to a currently existing policy, but it's an important form of insurance all its own. Get in touch with an agent at Knoxville Insurance Group to discuss what kind of identity theft insurance may be right for you.
