Wells Fargo offers identity theft protection, credit score monitoring, for a fee
I see when I log on to Wells Fargo that it now offers (to its account holders) identity theft protection for $12.99 a month, and adds credit score monitoring and simulation services for an extra $3, or a total of $15.99 a month.
My reaction is, why should we pay a bank to “protect us” when it should do its job anyway.
Here is the basic link.
Property insurance companies typically offer it as a rider or endorsement.
It’s harder to steal the identity of someone with an unusual name like mine and some public prominence than many people.
