Los Angeles Police Federal Credit Union Expands Nine Year Partnership with CyberScout to Offer Identity Theft and Fraud Fighting Tool

Thursday, April 03, 2014

Los Angeles Police Federal Credit Union (LAPFCU) today announced that it has expanded its partnership with CyberScout, the nation’s premier provider of identity and data risk management, resolution and education services, to offer FraudScout™ monitoring services under the name The I.D. Enforcer.

“As we specialize in serving the Los Angeles law enforcement community, we understand that protecting their families is very important,” said Manny Padilla Jr., Vice President of Marketing, LAPFCU. “We’re excited to offer a superior service designed to safeguard members and their families from identity theft and reputation issues. Members can rest assured they’re in good hands to get their identity and their financial well-being restored.”

Partners since 2005, LAPFCU members and their families can choose from three options within the FraudScout/I.D. Enforcer program which in addition to credit monitoring, provides members with access to credit scores and reports, as well as unique monitoring options that include change of address, social security trace, sex offender notifications and cyber monitoring (monitors chat rooms and websites and alerts you if your personally identifiable information is detected).

“Out of all the available options out there, we chose CyberScout because they have unique options which will best serve our member base,” Padilla explained.

Identity theft often hits when its victims are not looking, which is why FraudScout is an invaluable service. Around the clock, the service scours through millions of credit and public data on a continuous basis to keep information safe. FraudScout alerts members potentially days or months before activity would be detected without a monitoring service.

When personal information is lost, stolen or otherwise compromised, victims may not know where to turn, how to protect themselves, or how to minimize losses or resolve problems that may occur. With identity management and FraudScout services, LAPFCU members have access to an experienced CyberScout fraud specialist to help safeguard their identity and help in preventing potential damage to their credit and financial reputation before it happens. Should fraud occur, a CyberScout fraud specialist will provide unlimited assistance to restore a victim’s identity, handling the entire notification and documentation process. This valuable benefit provides unlimited assistance to help resolve identity theft and minimize risk at every stage of life.

“Identity theft comes in many forms and no longer just involves a victim’s financial life; it can affect their medical history, children, reputation, tax filings, and more,” said Matt Cullina, CEO, CyberScout. “The increase in data exposures like the Target breach, puts consumers’ data at-risk every single day and sometimes for years. LAPFCU has taken a significant step in protecting their members by offering the best in identity theft management and resolution services.”
