An Identity Theft Nightmare … and How Your Homeowners Insurance Can Help Protect You

When you hear about identity theft, you might be skeptical of just how bad it could be, or think it could never happen to you. On this week’s show, our guest Mark tells us about the nightmare that took over his life when someone stole his identity—which led to him being arrested and held overnight in jail.  He faced what seemed like an unwinnable situation … but his homeowners insurance policy carried an often overlooked service that gave him a lifeline out of the nightmare. Debbie Quinlivan of Metlife also joins us to discuss how consumers can take advantage of identity theft resolution services that some homeowners insurance policies offer.
