Protect Themselves from the Increasing Threat of Identity Theft
Palo Alto, Calif. (PRWEB) – September 5, 2012 – EZShield, a leader in identity theft management solutions, today announced it has partnered with CheckAdvantage, a printer and seller of business and personal checks, to provide check fraud protection and identity restoration services to CheckAdvantage customers. Through this partnership, business owners and consumers that use CheckAdvantage can leverage EZShield solutions to reduce their risk of identity theft and the subsequent monetary and time losses associated with this growing epidemic.
