U.S. Bank Bolsters Consumer Identity Theft Protection Offering with Addition of PrivacyGuard

MINNEAPOLIS, May 6, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- U.S. Bank is going the extra mile to help consumers protect themselves from identity theft by offering PrivacyGuard, available through U.S. Bancorp Insurance Services, LLC.

The offering complements the support of the U.S. Bank Fraud Liaison Center, introduced last fall, which has received rave reviews by consumers who have been the victims of fraud or identity theft and used the center to minimize the impact of the crime on their bank accounts.

PrivacyGuard offers consumers daily credit report monitoring and issues an alert to the customer should it detect any credit report activity. It comes with $10,000 in theft insurance to cover out-of-pocket expenses. Fraud resolution specialists with PrivacyGuard are also available to assist the customer with everything they need up to and after the filing of a police report.

U.S. Bank is making PrivacyGuard available to all of its consumer customers for a low monthly fee. To learn more about PrivacyGuard and other fraud prevention tools visit usbank.com or privacyguard.com. PrivacyGuard is a product of Trilegiant and is sold through U.S. Bancorp Insurance. Trilegiant, along with Progeny Marketing Innovations, is part of Cendant Marketing Group.
