I suggest thoroughly checking Privacy Maxx out. There are both pro's and con's (as with anything).

If anyone has doubts about the legitimacy of Privacy Maxx, they should know that [url=https://www.bbb.org/phoenix/business-reviews/identity-theft-protection-and-prevention-services/privacymaxx-in-phoenix-az-1000034005]BBB.org[/url] shows PrivacyMaxx has received 4.34 out of 5 stars based on 4 Customer Reviws and a BBB Rating of [b][u]A+[/u][/b]. Also, there are just two noted complaints with the BBB that involved a trial membership claim and a cancellation request issue. There are no noted complaints with the BBB regarding the legitimacy of Privacy Maxx and their proprietary monitoring system. The positive rating noted on BBB.org claims the following: "[i]PrivacyMaxx saved me with their outstanding service and actions. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking to cover themselves for Identity Theft. They fixed my credit quickly after I was a victim of a Data Breach and Identity Theft. Thank you, **** *****[/i]" dated 12/16/2015. When compared to similar monitoring services, Privacy Maxx offers a much more cost effective program. Take, for example, Fair Isaac's monitoring service. At a rate of $29.95 per month, for similar monitoring, that's an expense of $359.40 per year... versus $69 through Triple Clicks. A real no-brainer. :smile:
