DEARBORN, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre1 (CAFC) says more than 25,000 victims reported losing nearly $11 million to identity fraudsters in the first 11 months of 2015 – and estimates actual victims and dollars lost are 20 times greater than reported. Lincoln Automotive Financial Services is helping Canadian clients defend themselves against identity fraud with new complimentary credit monitoring.
“We want to provide our clients the peace of mind that comes from knowing their credit is being monitored all day and all night. They will be notified immediately of any activity affecting their credit,” said Alan Cusworth, Marketing and Brand manager. “Clients will also have unlimited access to their TransUnion credit report and credit score so they can check their status any time.”
The complimentary service is available to clients in Canada who finance or lease a new Lincoln through Lincoln Automotive Financial Services from May 2, 2016, through May 1, 2017, and who activate their account on the TransUnion website. The service continues for two years.
“Canadians are losing millions of dollars to identity theft every year and we expect a very positive response to this complimentary service,” Cusworth added.
