WHY US?

Because we have dealt with the experiences, challenges  and victories of thousands of people, we can assist you – before, during and after becoming a victim of an identity thief…

OUR MISSION:
 
…is to positively and directly impact the lives of One Million (1,000,000) Canadians  in order to show them that they canreduce their risk and decrease their vulnerability of identity abuse by taking a few steps towards change and better awareness. 

…is to raise the consciousness and awareness that identity theft is more about identity give-a-way because we tend to be too free with our information and that we all can change our habits in respect to our personal information, thus our informational security. In short, whether it is for our-selves, our families or our business, the protection and personal security of the information entrusted to us is our responsibility.

…is to have people realize that we all have three basic charactoristics that effect our very essence of who we are.  These are: 
       a) people do what people do  
       b) we don’t know what we don’t know, and 
       c) we cannot fix what we refuse to acknowledge. 

…is to have people feel comfortable about absolutely knowing and being able to say that …
“I AM THE ONLY ME THERE IS”.

OUR DRIVING FORCE:  

…is the phone calls, the hand written notes or the emails thanking us for the assistance as they work their way out of their situations. What drives us is knowing that we have touched a life in a positive way.

OUR RESULTS: 

…are that we have shared with thousands of people across Canada on how they can change some of their basic habits impacting their security and that of their families and their businesses. 

…have assited in changing the Canadian Criminal Code.  Section 402.1-5

We teach that “An informed Community is a Safer Community”.
