I've been curious about this for awhile. I monitor my credit report and scores regularly, but I'd like to know what the best program is to: 1) Protect my identity 2) Assist in the event my identity is stolen I've heard good things about LifeLock, but never from someone that's actually had to use it. I know I can freeze my credit scores, but that doesn't limit many aspects of fraud. I also plan to buy a place and a car within the next 6-9 months. EDIT: Jesus...this is my first post since the new layout. It looks horrendous.
