Until Legalshield/IDshield there was no reasonable recourse
Most of the problems took months to resolve, I lost a lot of money, I was unable to work productively, I could never reach the right people, neither the BBB nor the police were able to help. I had no one to represent me or even send a letter, I had to accept losses, and the problems were taking valuable time from my work and family. Attorneys were $300/hr but I could not even get one to call me back.
These events consume your time, your finances, and your peace of mind, and if you don't have a solution I hope you have either an attorney in the family who has the time and inclination to help you pro-bono, a reserve of cash, or insurance to cover the damages, costs, and time.
Your day will come too! None of us will evade these problems 100% of the time, and without recourse events like these can seriously disrupt your life, hurt you financially, sabotage your business, and potentially shut you down.
