HOW INTERNET MONITORING AND SURVEILLANCE WORKS
The Internet Monitoring and Surveillance service scours the Internet looking for customers' credit card numbers, bank accounts, account login information, home address, and many other pieces of personally identifiable information.
The Internet Marketing Monitoring and Surveillance service gathers as much relevant data as possible, securely stores the data, and runs pattern matching formulas and proprietary algorithms to evaluate and classify the results. Finally , the scrubbed and classified data is corelated and matched to existing customer profiles to determine if customer data has been found compromised on the Internet.
THE INTERNET BLACK MARKETS
Much like conventional black markets that peddle in drugs, counterfeit goods, weapons and other illegal items, Internet black markets operate with similar illegal intent. But instead of trading in guns, drugs and knock-off purses like in conventional black markets, Internet black markets deal in components of your identity including your bank account numbers, social security number, credit cards number, email addresses and your other personal information.
TYPES OF SITES THAT ARE MONITORED
Combining the best in technology and human intelligence, the proprietary 24/7 automated search robots and staff members trained in intelligence gathering search through millions of sites on the Internet, including sites like illicit newsgroups, IRC servers, black market forums,chat rooms, bulletin boards and other black market web pages.
TYPES OF DATA MONITORED
Client data that can be monitored includes credit card numbers, bank account numbers, online payment service login and passwords, email account logins and passwords, social security numbers and other critical identity and financial profile components that customers choose to have monitored.

Identity scoring and monitoring is more effective than credit report monitoring. Study by Gardner Group. more
Accounting to an independent study conducted by the Gartner Group, "Identity scoring and monitoring is more effective than credit report monitoring to watch for pontentially fraudulent activity. That's to be expected." Credit monitoring and identity monitoring are not to the same. Both offer protection, however identity monitoring, as Identity Avenger offers it, is uniquely designed to alert consumers to unauthorized attempts to use their identity in the earlier stages of an identity assumption. This proactive approach helps customers avoid the devastating effects of financial and non-financial misuse of their identity.
CREDIT MONITORING LIMITATIONS
Credit monitoring was developed to help customers find errors in their credit report before applying for a loan. Studies show credit reports can have up to a 79% error rate. There are other differences between identity monitoring and credit monitoring. When protecting personal information, consumers need a secure, accurate, user friendly solution that doesn't increase the risk to their identity.
IDENTITY MONITORING IS SECURE
Signing up for an identity monitoring service is simple and secure. You enroll with your name, address and telephone number and we begin the process. You are not required to provide a Social Security Number. Any time you release your Social Security Number there is a risk of it being abused. Credit monitoring firms require this information. The credit bureaus that offer credit monitoring services profit by reselling the sensitive personal information (including Social Security Number) they gather from customers for use in credit marketing campaigns. Once this sensitive information has been sold, the bureaus can't guarantee its security.
IDENTITY MONITORING IS ACCURATE
The scope of credit monitoring is limited to financial activity. Twenty-two percent of identity theft victims report that their identity was used in some "non-financial" way such as commission of a crime or filling of false tax returns. Identity monitoring addresses both financial and nonfinancial misuse of personal information. According to the Public Interest Research Group, 79% of credit reports contain some type of errors. This accuracy raises the issues of credit monitoring as a reliable solution for identity theft prevention. Identity monitoring with our solution, EarlyAlertTM, has resulted in a claim rate of less than 1 per 100,000.
IDENTITY MONITORING IS USER FRIENDLY
Credit monitoring firms offer primarily web based customer service. On-line customer service can be a challenge to a certain segment of the population and offers limited comfort during what can be a trying experience. Identity monitoring, as SG IDENTITY offers, provides customers with live telephone support.
Postal service sold private data; Government warns public on fake e-mails; Payment processor reports records theft; . . .etc . Credit monitoring firms provide customers with actual credit reports via the Internet which can be confusing and difficult to interpret. When there is an alert, our Customer Service Representatives call potential victims directly. They offer the necessary information and the appropriate steps required for the proper course of action.
IDENTITY MONITORING - HIGH LEVEL PROTECTION
Checking one's credit history prior to applying for a loan is important, but as a tool for protecting individuals from the costly, time consuming perils associated with identity theft in a secure, accurate user-friendly way, identify monitoring offers the highest level of protection.

Criminals use sophisticated methods to obtain and misuse our personal information. more
Scams often manage to stay one step ahead of consumers. Identity theft isn't just a pain in the wallet anymore. As consumer awareness about the importance of privacy protection has increased in recent years, so has the sophistication of the methods criminals employ to obtain and misuse our personal information for their own benefit. Here's a closer look at different types of identity theft currently being perpetrated-and how SG IDENTITY can keep you safe from even the wiliest of thieves.
FINANCIAL IDENTITY THEFT
This is the most common-and well-known-form of identity theft. One way or another, a criminal gets a hold of your financial information such as credit card numbers, and starts charging away. The "luckier" victims find out early on and resolve the problem quickly with the credit card company. But less fortunate identity theft victims remain unaware of the fraudulent activity for much longer, only to find out the criminal has opened new credit card and utility accounts, events leased a car or apartment in their name.
CRIMINAL IDENTITY THEFT
Criminal identity theft is a true identity theft-basically, someone impersonating you-but with a twist. With this type of crime, the thief doesn't want your money; he wants your clean record and good name. And instead of landing himself in jail, he hopes your information will help get him out and put you in the slammer instead.
In this case, when the criminal gets pulled over, arrested, or investigated, he gives all of your data instead of his own. Then, when he gets out on bail, he simply skips the court date or doesn't show up to serve his sentence. All the while, fees and penalties are incurring in your name, and you'll never know it until law enforcement runs your plates and finds out ther's a warrant out for your arrest. Or, you'll be denied a job, only to be told you failed the background check based on "your" criminal record.
MEDICAL IDENTITY THEFT
Who would want your bunions, bad back, and family history of heart disease? Someone who doesn't have medical insurance and needs it badly for an operation, a chronic disorder that requires ongoing care, or maintenance drugs. That person might be desperate enough to steal your personal insurance information and use it to receive care under your name. Recent pushes toward keeping medical records online have medical identity theft on the rise, and there are serious medical and financial issues that come along with it. First, you'ill have to deal with the uncovered portions of often whopping hospital and doctor bills the theft has racked up in your name not to mention the frightening medical implications that start to build as the incorrect medical information of the identity thief becomes attached to your files. This can make for improper diagnosis and treatment should you ever need emergency care and doctors make their decisions based not on your real medical history but the criminal's history instead.
Identity Theft has become one of the issues of our generation. The numbers are staggering. According to the Federal Trade Commission's Identity Theft Survey Report:
